October 12, 2021

Iceland has published its latest Food Waste Report, which provides an update on its food waste reduction targets and initiatives.

In line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal SDG 12.3, Iceland has set itself a target to achieve a 50% reduction of food waste in its operations by 2030, with 2017/18 as its baseline year and is on track to achieve this despite the impact of Covid-19.

As a next step, Iceland now has ambitious plans to redistribute surplus food in new ways and its aim for 2021/22 is to redistribute one million meals, through existing and new food waste partnerships. Iceland is also looking at additional ways to further reduce food surplus, such as improving existing schemes and engaging in new business models to reduce food waste.
