We’re excited to be hosting the first ever surplus food summit on 17th June, in partnership with the Food and Drink Federation, the British Retail Consortium and the Fresh Produce Consortium. The day aims to engage and enable more food companies to redistribute their surplus food to charity by sharing best practice from across the sector.

This event will bring together senior managers, managing directors and CEOs (working in Sustainability, CSR, Operations, Supply Chain and Waste and Resource Management) from within the food industry.
