What’s New

PECT has joined partners from across the UK and France to launch Cool Food Pro. The project aims to support organisations and their caterers to reduce food waste by implementing changes to existing practices and contributing to being carbon neutral by 2050.

To do this, free training and resources are being provided to schools.

The process is straight forward and will bring schools and caterers together to work towards a common goal. The School Cool Food Pro project has been designed to be easily achievable so that money can be saved and carbon can be cut through minimising food waste.  Free access will also be provided to the  Cool Food Pro carbon calculator and the communications toolkit so that school successes can be shared thereby encouraging others to join in.
