Tristram Stuart
Tristram Stuart is the winner of the international environmental award, The Sophie Prize 2011, for his fight against food waste. His latest international prize-winning book, Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal (Penguin, 2009), revealed that a third of the world's food supply is wasted, and that tackling this problem is one of the simplest ways of reducing pressure on the environment and on global food supplies.

Tristram set up Feeding the 5000 (www.feeding5k.org), the flagship event of a global food waste campaign where 5000 members of the public are given a free lunch using only ingredients that otherwise would have been wasted. Held twice in Trafalgar Square (2009 and 2011), the Feeding the 5000 team have now launched replica events and campaigns internationally, and has now been commissioned to work globally in partnership with the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Program.
