A web app to help food businesses determine whether their surplus food is suitable for animal feed and navigate the relevant legislation

The United Nations estimates that if farmers around the world fed their livestock on the food that we currently waste and on agricultural by-products, enough grain would be liberated to feed an extra three billion people. To help food businesses contribute to such a grand waste-free future, REFRESH is building a web app for businesses to clarify which surplus food is suitable, and what needs to be done to send the food to animal feed in a safe and legal way.

The app is now available for the UK and will be converted to the Spanish and Dutch contexts in the next year and a half. The aim is to make it as easy as possible for food businesses to understand the legislation and requirements that are applicable to their specific context.
