SEAFISH has produced a guide to encourage small businesses in the seafood industry reducing waste in a bid to achieve ambitious targets that will have to be in place by 2025.
Aimed at the processing sector in Scotland, the government body said that all businesses should recycle 70 per cent of all waste by the middle of the decade.
There is also a commitment to reduce overall food waste by 33 per cent.
Scottish regional manager Jess Sparks said: “The seafood processing sector uses large volumes of resources in their day-to-day business activities; from raw materials and packaging, through to water and energy.
“This guide outlines simple steps processors can take to get started in better resource management and waste reduction.”
A copy of the guide can be downloaded from Seafish’s website.
