We’ll Help You Navigate California’s Senate Bill SB 1383,
Mandating Food Waste Reduction

Food waste reduction is a national goal because food waste is the single largest contributor to landfills. Many states across the country are adopting organic waste reduction goals to combat the harmful greenhouse gas emissions caused by food waste and other organics in landfills.

California is leading the charge through Senate Bill SB 1383 – a state-mandated effort to reduce organic waste in California landfills by 75%, and to increase excess edible food recovery by 20% by 2025. This law requires California jurisdictions, food waste generators (grocery stores, restaurants, food distributors, and food service providers, among others), and food recovery organizations to achieve compliance or risk facing fines, penalties, and potential litigation. Regulations take effect and enforcement begins January 1, 2022.

Abound provides logistics planning, food recovery resources, and data collection to help our partners achieve SB 1383 compliance. Some of these solutions are offered free of charge for businesses or organizations who qualify.
