Cranswick have been recognised as industry leaders for its projects on food waste and food redistribution at the Waste2zero Award ceremony, which took place at St James’s Square in London last week.
Food waste remains one of the biggest challenges facing the food and hospitality industry, therefore, to be recognised as a major food production business to win this award is a monumental achievement, the company said.
Cranswick was announced as winners of the ‘Best Waste Prevention Project Award’ highlighting examples of its food waste mapping exercises at each of its sites, as well as tackling household food waste by the promotion and sponsorship of the food sharing app OLIO in their native city of Hull.
As runners-up in the “Food Redistribution Award”, Cranswick received specific recognition for its community initiatives such as Olio and support of food banks and food poverty related charities in and around Hull.
“This is a fantastic achievement for the group and deserved recognition to everyone in the business,” Cranswick said in a statement.
