Associated British Foods, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Kraft Foods and Premier Foods are among the major UK food and drink companies to sign up to the second phase of the Courtauld Commitment, launched in 2010.

The Courtauld Commitment is a voluntary agreement run by waste advisory body WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) and helps businesses to improve their overall performances and reduce their environmental impact.

Signatories to the second phase of the Courtauld Commitment are supporting three sector targets associated with food waste and packaging across the UK grocery retail supply chain.

“Building a sustainable business is not only about protecting the environment. With it comes a leaner, more efficient business which strips out waste and saves money. The voluntary approach allows industry sectors to move as one and deliver change without government intervention,” points out Liz Goodwin, chief executive of WRAP. “Responsibility deals stimulate businesses to come up with their own ways to solve problems, giving them far greater flexibility and avoiding potentially onerous regulations.”

Other companies to join the Courtauld Commitment since July 2010 are: AB InBev UK, Cafedirect, Concha y Toro, Cott Beverages, Findus Group, Kraft Foods UK, Miller Brands (UK), Kimberley Clark UK and P & G UK & Ireland.
