Survey Sheds Light on Event Industry Food Waste

I love a free pastry as much as the next person, and I hate a wasted pastry as much as them too.

All croissant tomfoolery aside, today we’re sharing a serious piece of new research published by the Lime Venue Portfolio about the food we consume at conferences and events. Or, rather, the food we don’t consume that goes to waste.

The survey of 60 organisers shows an admission of the staggering levels of waste produced in our industry. As just one example, around 30% of event professionals throw away 15% of the food they order for events. 18% of those say that number is closer to 20% for them.

We’d encourage you to give the report on the research by Event Industry News a read and to consider the findings when you’re placing your next catering order.
