Food waste is an issue of importance for global food security and good environmental governance. It can be directly linked to environmental, economic and social impacts. Drivers of food waste are diverse and can be associated with technical, socio-economic and institutional (legislation and policy) factors. The primary focus of food waste prevention should be to act at the source by limiting the generation of surplus food at each stage of the food supply chain. However, when food surpluses occur, the best destination, which ensures the highest value use of edible food resources, is to redistribute these to human consumption. This report gives an overview and analysis of the regulatory and policy measures impacting food redistribution in the EU Member States.
