UK Food and drink manufacturers signed up to the Federation House Commitment (FHC)including 23 sites in Scotland, have achieved a 14.4% reduction in water use (excluding that in product), according to the latest progress report, launched today by WRAP.

The amount of water saved between 2007 and 2011 by signatories to the voluntary agreement, which aims to help manufacturers in the food and drink industry to improve their water efficiency, could fill nearly 2,400 Olympic-size swimming pools.

Zero Waste Scotland is a programme of work delivered by WRAP in Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government.
