The purpose of the Framework for Effective Redistribution Partnerships (‘the Redistribution Framework’) is to help organisations increase volumes of food redistributed in the UK by:

1) Providing a structured and efficient approach to the creation and operation of partnerships which enable successful food redistribution, taking into account the needs and ways of working of both the food surplus provider and a recipient organisation;

2) Supporting more consistent exchange of key information; and 3) Stimulating a more structured approach to the identification of surpluses suitable for redistribution.

The Redistribution Framework is intended to help individual providers and recipients to adopt or adapt their own processes and choices for handling surplus, to fit with existing ways of working, while making it easier for multiple organisations to work with each other.

Food waste is an end-to-end challenge that requires end-to-end solutions. WRAP and IGD are inviting businesses to participate in whole chain food waste reduction plans (WCPs) – working together across the supply chain to take joint actions that reduce farm to fork food waste. WCPs form a key deliverable of the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap. Supporters of the Roadmap have committed to Target, Measure, Act to reduce their own food waste, work in partnership with suppliers, and help consumers.
