For the past 14 years, the Hot 100 has provided an annual list of the industry’s biggest influencers, as voted for by you.

Last year, it was celebrity chef and waste campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall that topped the chart, after his Hugh’s War on Waste BBC series brought issues of supermarket supply chain food waste as well as poor household recycling practices to national attention.

This year, with another episode initiating a national discussion on disposable coffee cup waste added to his CV, will Hugh be voted to the number one spot again?

With the industry facing up to Brexit, continuing the food waste battle, addressing the proliferation of ocean plastic, and continuing to innovate throughout the waste and recycling process, there will definitely be a wide variety of names vying for this year’s top spot.
