Answered By:

We do not know how much non-domestic food waste London produced as non-domestic waste data is collected intermittently - the last time being 2009. In addition, the data only reports waste arisings by sector and not by composition.

My Business Waste Strategy estimates that 6 per cent of non-domestic food is waste.
