Webinar Overview

As part of the Bord Bia’s key role in supporting food waste reduction in the food and drink sector in Ireland, we are delighted to invite you to an informative webinar focused on Ireland’s 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 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.
