Liz Goodwin was CEO at the widely respected Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) for almost a decade, and currently leads the food waste programme at the World Resources Institute. If anyone can appraise the food sector’s performance on waste management, it’s her. In January, at a Westminster energy, environment and transport forum in London, she said: “The issues and potential benefits don’t feel real to individual companies. They don’t see the urgency, they still don’t see the business case and they don’t feel a burning platform.”

Six months on, I wonder if this is still the case?
