These guidelines have been prepared jointly by FoodDrinkEurope, EuroCommerce and the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA). By setting out a simple framework of practical steps that can be taken, they aim to help food and drink manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers anticipate and prepare for any potential surplus that may arise in the business. This in turn should then enable more effective partnerships to be formed with FEBA Food Bank members and other food donation organisations for the resource efficiency and other benefits of donation to be more readily realised.

The scope of the guidance is primarily on donation to FEBA Food Bank members and other food donations partners, which are essentially non-profit. It is recognised though that in practice, manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers may use a combination of options to manage surpluses both within and outside the scope of this guidance.
