BHA responds to new food wastage report

In response to the EFRA Select Committee report on food wastage Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive of the British Hospitality Association (BHA), has commented.

Ibrahim said, 'The hospitality industry serves more than 8.3 billion meals each year. The BHA will support businesses to control portion sizes as calorie guidelines are produced by PHE over the coming year.

'Our first Industry Nutrition Guide, which will be published imminently, recognises the need for change by equipping catering professionals at all levels with the nutrition know-how to provide healthier choices for their customers.

'Hospitality and Catering businesses have already made great strides in producing healthier options, showing that the industry is more than willing to work with government to meet their challenging nutrition targets.'
