The key ambition of the Circular Food Center is to retain 1 billion kilograms of food in the supply chain.

This knowledge centre and meeting place is established in the Netherlands (CHV Noordkade, Meierijstad). The initiatives at the centre will contribute to SDG 12.3 as established by the United Nations in 2015 to reduce food waste by half by 2030. Businesses, social organisations, research institutes, and government agencies will join forces here. The Circular Food Center is a key project in the Regio Deal Noordoost Brabant (northeast Brabant regional deal).
