M&S PLAN A
Our Food Waste Approach
We're proud of our quality, fresh food and believe it's just too good to be wasted. That’s why we’ve set ambitious targets to tackle food waste across M&S, from our supply chain to our customers' homes.

Food waste has a huge impact on the planet and at M&S, we've taken some huge steps so far. But we know there is more work to be done. We pride ourselves on the quality and freshness of our food and believe it's just too good to be wasted. That's why, we're finding new ways to cut our waste and make sure all our surplus food ends up on a plate.
At M&S, none of our food waste goes in the bin and is all sent to create energy to power homes and businesses.
By 2025, our target is to halve food waste (net food waste relative to sales) and to make sure 100% of edible surplus food finds its way to a dinner plate. It’s all part of our plan to be a zero-waste business by 2025.
A lot more to come
We’ve made some good progress on cutting food waste but we can go much further. We’re working quickly to find new solutions and over the next year, we'll announce bigger and bolder approaches to reducing food waste.
