G's is the worthy winner of the FreshAwards 2021 Sustainability Excellence award, sponsored by Graphic Packaging International
G’s leads the way in setting standards for the industry in reporting and reducing field food waste. Working with WRAP G’s was the first grower packer to report in-field waste for its UK and Spanish operations under the WRAP Roadmap using the Target-Measure-Act principle. This step change is driven by Chairman John Shropshire and by vocal champions across the group. By sharing its knowledge G’s work benefits others, through participation in workshops, webinars and in writing sector specific guidance. Food waste has been reduced, new product specifications trialed with retailers, and any excess food is donated in partnership with FareShare.
The judges commented: “A pioneering and transparent approach to minimising food waste with exceptional benefits throughout the business and beyond. “
