Feedback (UK)

Feedback is an environmental organisation that campaigns to end food waste at every level of the food system. We believe that tackling food waste is a massive and immediate opportunity to reduce the environmental impact and improve the social value of our food system. Food waste campaigning also offers a unique and accessible platform from which to communicate the wider issues of food sustainability to the public. We catalyse action on food waste elimination in the UK and globally, working with governments, international institutions, businesses, NGOs, grassroots organisations and the public to change society’s attitude toward wasting food. With a track record of changing the policies of some of the UK’s biggest food companies and reaching out to millions of people through our projects, our innovative campaigning style has helped to elevate food waste from a non-issue several years ago to one now recognised as an urgent national and international priority.
