Indonesia does not yet have regulations governing the problem of food waste, so the Surplus Peduli Pangan Foundation is here to fight for and help the community and Indonesia to be part of the solution to the food waste problem.

In February 2020, the Surplus Community was initiated under Surplus Indonesia (PT. Indonesian Circular Economy) to realize the Zero Food Waste movement. The Surplus Community provides information and education to the public regarding environmental issues, especially regarding food waste issues and provides a platform for the community to create a sustainable life and environment.

The Surplus Community is now officially within the Surplus Cares for Food Foundation. The Surplus Peduli Pangan Foundation was founded on May 21 2021 and operates in the fields of education, empowerment, social and humanitarian issues, as well as environmental awareness in creating a generation of Indonesian people who are aware of food waste.

Foundation Vision :
