The Dutch Taskforce Circular Economy in Food (Dutch National Platform) was launched during the National Food Summit in the Netherlands (26 January 2017). It is currently composed of 25 members from the entire food supply chain, from SMEs to food multinationals, and is supplemented with members from and civil society and public organisations.

For a period of three weeks in July 2017, REFRESH invites responses to a consumer survey.  The aim is to look at different formats of guidance found on food and drink products, and the effects they have on consumer behaviour. The survey is focused on the four REFRESH pilot countries: The Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Hungary.

The Dutch Taskforce, launched in January 2017, aims to contribute to preventing and reducing food waste, and become an international frontrunner in the valorisation of agri-food residual streams. The Taskforce is a coalition of companies across the full food supply chain, national and local authorities, a civil society organisation and other invited members. The first official meeting took place in March 2017.
