This Implementation Resource has been created to supplement WRAP’s Guidance on Labelling for Redistribution (the Guidance), which outlines how long different foods can be expected to be suitable for redistribution after the ‘Best Before’ date, the associated date labelling and storage instructions and the processes required by food businesses and redistribution organisations within the UK to ensure that surplus food is safely redistributed.

This implementation resource is based on current best practice in food businesses and redistribution organisations and can be used by all surplus providers (for example, retailers, hospitality and food service and manufacturers) and all surplus receivers (for example redistribution bodies and charities).
