The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board is reminding farmers and growers to review their water usage and is advising of steps to build resilience into their long-term supply, as UK temperatures are confirmed as hitting record highs.

A new report from WRAP showing a significant upsurge in the amount of surplus food handled by UK charitable and commercial redistribution organisations has been published as eight charities and not-for-profit groups will receive grants from the Government's £500,000 Food Waste Reduction Fund, administered by WRAP, to provide resources needed to expand their work.

London's Borough Market is joining together with six of the world's best food markets to form the 'Magnificent Seven' (M7) alliance to have a stronger voice on the world stage - going global to promote the idea of staying local in terms of food production, sustainability and the supply chain.

UK soil is being destroyed at 10 times the rate it is being created, costing £1.2 billion annually in England and Wales -  but only a fraction of the cost, £10 million pounds a year in England, is needed to ensure the agricultural sector is still productive at the end of the century, and this would reverse the declining health of our rivers, claim a coalition of interest groups.

Retailer Iceland's decision to remove palm oil from its own branded food has been criticised by both The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, who share Iceland's concerns about the environmental impact of palm oil, but do not agree with the solutions Iceland are adopting, and the Durrell Institute of Conservation and Biology who say Iceland’s move to ban palm oil products is understandable but could backfire.

Protein Challenge 2040, a coalition of businesses and organisations, has launched a report titled The Feed Behind Our Food, urging retailers and food service companies to scrutinise what is fed to livestock and farmed fish at a time of massive growth for animal feed production. It also outlines several new innovations that can tackle the problem.

A need for North West England's food manufacturers to tackle their edible waste has led to Company Shop, the UK's largest redistributor of surplus food and household products, opening its 5th new superstore in St Helens, Merseyside.

A new 'green' and low-waste beer has been released by Borough Market with all profits going to the trader support fund, helping to ease the financial losses following the Islamic State inspired terror attack six months ago.

An environmentally friendly fish feed produced in north east England from gas-eating bacteria has been given an award by the Institution of Chemical Engineers, and promises to reduce pressure on both small species seafish stocks and land use.

An estimated 29,000 marine turtles are killed each year in tropical prawn trawls that export to the EU, with the UK being the biggest market. Yet a simple and effective solution – Turtle Excluder Devices (TEDs) – can be used by fisheries to tackle this issue a WWF report reveals.
