Increasing the amount of food surplus that is redistributed from food businesses is a key strand of the strategy to reduce food waste, to deliver the Courtauld Commitment 2025 (Courtauld 2025) target and ultimately the Sustainable Development Goal 12.3. There has been a significant increase in activities aimed at achieving this, with good progress being made over recent years (Surplus Food Redistribution in the UK; 2015 to 2017).
