The catering industry in the UK is facing some formidable challenges. The focus of the challenges are;

  • Sharply rising prices for both food and energy,
  • Restricted household budgets reducing consumer demand

There is also increasing pressure on caterers to demonstrate environmental responsibility on food choice and sourcing methods, carbon emissions, water use and waste disposal.

To help the catering industry succeed in the face of these challenges, the Carbon Trust have worked together with leading groups DEFRA, CESA, CEDA, BHA, FSCI to develop the Cut Costs & Carbon Calculator.

The calculator can be used in practice to assist with performance benchmarking, equipment innovation, kitchen design, process optimisation, menu development and behavioural change.
