In June 2017, PPHG conducted a pilot study in which an estimated 4,500-5,000 kg of preand post-consumer food was being disposed of every day from their various premises. This was about 40% of their 3,000 tonnes of waste disposed of annually. Both PPHG staff & guests are not conscious of the volume of waste that they generate, nor are they aware of the cumulative impact that it has on the overall waste stream. The group currently relies on the waste collection service provider, to furnish information on waste disposal and does not have an effective means to monitor waste, track and analyse waste generated at source for further actions.
PPHG is interested to further the group’s waste management practices and has identified food waste management as a priority waste stream, which is also in line with NEA’s zero waste masterplan.
With ongoing measures in place for the recycling of mixed cooked food waste, PPHG aims to focus on food waste avoidance, upcycling, reusing or repurposing before they are cooked. In order to help reduce food waste at the upstream stage, PPHG aims to implement solutions that are targeted at achieving the following:
