A new report, co-authored by Lavery Pennell and the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Manufacturing, identifies £920M p.a. in cost savings and 6.6 million tCO2e p.a. reduction that the UK Food and Beverage sector is now missing.
Following two years of research, peer review, and a summit workshop bringing together key companies, government departments and industry bodies, this report presents the business case for resource efficiency and how to access the available opportunities.
The report includes a 2023 Vision for the sector which has been collaboratively developed to include improvements currently available – but which are not being exploited.
A roadmap of action is also presented which will see WRAP, FDF, EEF, the University of Cambridge and the Next Manufacturing Revolution striving to achieve this vision.
