Food Waste Charter
The Food Waste Charter is a public expression of commitment to reduce food waste by businesses and organisations in Ireland. The Charter is a voluntary agreement to accelerate action to reach Ireland’s food waste reduction target waste in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3. The Charter promotes a collective industry commitment to measure, reduce and report food waste along the food supply chain.
