Sign up to Food Redistribution : Courtauld 2025 and food redistribution - collective vision statement
The Courtauld 2025 Surplus Food Redistribution Working Group has agreed a collective form of words that all signatories can use regarding their commitment to redistribution. This will help reinforce our collective vision of redistribution becoming a ‘business as usual’ working practice in the sector and demonstrate how we are working together to achieve that vision. The statement below can be used in part or in full to support signatories’ communications, for example in response to media enquiries.
Food redistribution collective vision statement.
‘Courtauld 2025 (C2025) is an ambitious voluntary agreement that brings together organisations across the UK food system - from producer to consumer - to reduce food and drink waste by 20 per cent by 2025. Our shared vision is that, where food surpluses cannot be avoided, all UK food and drink companies should seek to redistribute surplus food ahead of any other option.
As part of C2025, signatories including leading retailers, manufacturers, and food redistribution organisations have agreed an ambition to work collaboratively with WRAP to double the amount of surplus food they redistribute by 2020 against a 2015 baseline’.
• The Courtauld Commitment 2025 (C2025) is an ambitious voluntary agreement that brings together organisations across the food system - from producer to consumer - to cut the resource needed to provide our food and drink by one-fifth over ten years. For more information see www.wrap.org.uk/courtauld2025
• A Surplus Food Redistribution Working Group (the Working Group), consisting of signatory organisations and managed by WRAP, will act as a catalyst for change in the sector. This will be achieved by identifying barriers to food redistribution to find practical solutions and share best practices across the food and drink sector.
