Food Waste Recycling

Recycling Services

Animal By-Products & Waste Food

We are all becoming increasingly aware of the need to reduce our environmental impact through reducing our carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable lifestyle.

Organisations in the foodchain are able to reduce their carbon footprints by diverting unsold or unusable ‘waste products’ from landfill to create renewable energy.

SARIA provides a unique ‘one-stop shop’ collection and recycling service for all waste food products (including products in packaging and tins) with complete coverage across the UK.

The collected products are processed to seperate food materials from any packaging. The food materials are either then re-processed to recover new products (such as protein or liquid fat), or are used as direct fuel source to for the generation of renewable energy.

SARIA has a a number of plants dedicated to the generation of renewable energy from food wastes; including Anaerobic Digestion and Biomass Combustion.

The liquid fat recovered from the food waste is used as a feedstock for the production of biodiesel or as a renewable energy fuel.

ReFood’s food waste recycling services are used by some of the best known names on the High Street including Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland.

The ReFood service also handles food wastes from restaurants, hotels, hospitals, fast-food outlets and manufacturing/distribution centres.
