Industry’s voluntary agreement the Courtauld Commitment 2025, brokered by ACR+ member WRAP, continues to grow as 30 new signatories join the 10 year commitment to reduce the resource intensity of the UK’s food and drink. Thanks to the new signatories who have signed since its March launch, Courtauld 2025 now includes food & drink businesses representing 95% of the 2016 UK food retail market – as well as many leading brands, manufacturers and hospitality & food service companies. Through this ambitious voluntary agreement, businesses and a range of other organisations have committed to collaborate, from farm to fork and beyond, to create a truly UK-wide environment of innovation.

WRAP is currently selecting signatory-led innovation projects to develop within food & drink supply chains. The results of these projects will provide best practice to be shared across the sector, to help any company work more efficiently within their existing supply chains. WRAP is also working with the Financial Services Authority and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs to review and update guidance on date labelling by businesses, work that will help people in the home and across the network of redistribution organisations to keep food safely for longer.
