How to guide for hospitality businesses

A guide for hospitality businesses on how to set up a surplus food collection programme

Most hospitality businesses create food surpluses; it is seen as a normal part of business. Some of the surplus is reused, recycled, or composted, but there is a far more beneficial solution. Many businesses, from large supermarket chains to small cafés, now donate their surplus food to good causes. In Wales, helping to reduce food poverty is a key aim of the Welsh Government, and redistribution is a way of helping tackle that aim.

This guide gives brief but practical information on how to donate surplus food. It is written by people working in the hospitality sector who know the issues facing businesses.
