With 16% of adults (one in six people) across England, Wales and Northern Ireland experiencing food insecurity1, IGD has launched a new guide to help manufacturing companies increase their redistribution of surplus food.
Maximising Food Surplus Redistribution: A Guide For Food Manufacturing Businesses is the first step in a new programme of work on redistribution from IGD. We are mobilising the industry to take collective action on this critical issue and urgently accelerate the amount of surplus food being redistributed. We have joined forces with Ben Elliot, Food Surplus and Waste Champion for Defra, and WRAP, to launch the guide, which will be followed by the creation of a new online redistribution resources hub later in the summer.

We focus on mobilising the industry to tackle climate change, reduce food waste, increase food surplus redistribution and develop sustainable packaging systems.
