Collaborative Action for Impact

Partnering for Change

Food waste is an opportunity. How can we come together to unlock this opportunity and experience the numerous social, economic, and environmental benefits. In addition to our advisory and technical solutions, we actively engage in advocacy. We facilitate access to knowledge, encourage knowledge sharing between stakeholders, and engage individuals in community-based campaigns. 

Advocacy is an important part of our work. We believe that real sustainable change requires ongoing conversation as well as a culture of taking action. By providing access to relevant resources we empower individuals, organisations, and businesses to find innovative ways to contribute and make an impact. Regardless of your goal, whether it is to reduce carbon emissions, adopt best practices, or reduce your food waste footprint, we have relevant resources and conversations below.

We are building a community of advocates to raise awareness of the bahaviours responsible for food waste. Volunteer to become an i'm Perfect Food Ambassador. Ambassadors coordinate and run food waste awareness campaigns in local communities.  We also work with volunteers to bring our food products to workplace cafeterias and shops. All volunteers receive training and support

Scotland: A Good Food Nation

Similar to other middle and high income nations, food waste in Scotland's food value chain is concentrated downstream post harvest. Interventions at the points of manufacturing, distribution and consumption have the greatest potential for strengthening our food system.

It's estimated that up to 20% of food produced in Scotland goes to waste. Businesses, particularly those in the food and drink sector, can contribute greatly to reversing this trend. A key first step, in order to identify the right sustainability strategy, is monitoring. By monitoring food waste by volume a business can determine the size of their food waste footprint. More robust monitoring that includes waste at the customer plate, food preparation, and storage (spoilage) can help to identify food waste hotspots.

Engaging Scotland's "Good Food Nation" policy can produce social, economic, and environmental benefits. Every step change toward a more sustainable food system counts. The food and drink sector has an important role to play. At i'mPerfect, we can help you identify the right sustainability strategies for your business to make its own contribution to the national objective of becoming a "Good Food Nation".
