Markets sought for food industry waste

The consultancy ADAS is seeking a range of food processing and catering businesses in north-west England to participate in a £1.9 million project to find markets for waste materials.

The aim is to bring waste producers into contact with composting and recycling businesses. Sectors including vegetable and meat processing, bakeries, dairies and ready meals are among those to be targeted.

By putting in place the recycling infrastructure for a few large food manufacturing businesses, the project aims to confer benefits for smaller food operations. "Once provided with the crucial kick-start, these recycling operations will grow organically and take in waste streams from other food producers," ADAS says.

The project forms part of a wider Transformation of Waste to Products initiative managed by Envirolink Northwest. Alongside ADAS' work with food businesses, Enviros and Entec will be working with the chemicals and paper sectors. Manchester's UMIST is also involved. Details from
