Cathay Pacific Catering Services pilots food waste collection

Cathay Pacific Catering Services (CPCS) has committed to increasing its sustainable credentials by joining a pilot scheme for food waste collection.

The scheme, which will be overseen by the Environmental Protection Department, will see food waste generated by CPCS in Hong Kong collected, separated and transferred to O.Park 1 where it will be transformed into energy and compost.

In a statement shared on LinkedIn, the company said: “As a large-scale flight kitchen and catering services provider, it is unavoidable that food waste is generated during the daily operations of CPCS. To make good use of organic resources and avoid landfill disposal, we have joined the “Pilot Scheme on Food Waste Collection” launched by the Environmental Protection Department since 2021.

“Recently, CPCS is proud to be awarded the appreciation certificate for participating in the scheme. We promise to continue our efforts in achieving sustainable development through food waste recycling.”
