Environmental Policy

At the Festival MarketPlace, our aim is to minimize our environmental impact and where possible, avoid the creation of unnecessary waste. 
1. Reduce food waste.
2. Reduce single-use plastics.
3. Ensure appropriate disposal and recycling.


1. Reduce food waste

  • Food waste is now considered to be the third-largest contributor to climate change.

  • Worldwide, tonnes of edible food is lost or wasted every day.

  • Between harvest and retail alone, around 14 percent of all food produced globally is lost.

  • Huge quantities of food are also wasted in retail or at the consumer level. 

  • We ask stallholders to be mindful not to simply throw away food unnecessary.

  • We all have a part to play in saving food - check out UN FAO's call on food waste.

  • Video link 


2. Reduce single-use plastics

  • The extent of our plastic pollution problem is terrifying.

  • Current estimates show that at least 8 million pieces of plastic are entering the oceans every day.

  • Our ability to recycle plastic has been dramatically overstated and it’s currently believed only 9% of global plastic is actually recycled.

  • The solution lies in reducing our reliance on plastic in the first place.

  • The main culprits at festivals are bottles, cups, straws, cutlery, and condiment sachets.

  • At Future FoodTech Festival, we will be asking festival go-ers to support our cause in this regard.

  • Instead of plastic bottles, consider shifting to water sold in glass bottles and or biodegradable containers.

  • Plastic straws should be replaced with paper and or biodegradable alternatives.

  • All plastic plates, containers, and cutlery should, where possible, be replaced with cardboard or compostable/biodegradable alternatives.


3. Ensure appropriate recycling and composting

  • To ensure on-site disposal of recycling, landfill, and composting.

  • working closely with the building/venue provider Organising Team to ensure proper disposal of waste.

  • Politely remind people to dispose of rubbish in the appropriate bins.

The Organising Team reserves the right to change, add and/or omit any Stallholders Terms and Conditions for the best interest of the Festival and ensuring the success of the event.
