It is with a mixture of sadness and anticipation that we bring to you the news that Feedback’s Executive Director, Niki Charalampopoulou, will be stepping down at the start of 2017. Working in partnership with Tristram Stuart to found the organisation, she has headed up Feedback with passion and skill, firmly establishing food waste on the global agenda. She has built a small but strong team of experienced campaigners who have catalysed nothing less than a global movement. Starting with nothing more than a band of dedicated volunteers and incontrovertible truths to back us up, Feedback has pushed the issue of food waste from a non-entity to a global priority, with industry, government, international institutions and civic society now rallying round this eminently solvable global problem. Looking back at what our tiny team has achieved makes us proud. But we like to think that the work has only just begun.
So, as Niki steps down, Feedback is poised to enter a new and exciting phase of its development. Working with allies around the world, we want to move the food system ever faster towards it becoming one of humanity’s key tools in solving global environmental problems such as deforestation, carbon emissions, species extinction and exhaustion of water supplies. In order to achieve our ambitious goals, we are looking for a new Executive Director to lead us. If you think you might be that person, or you know someone who might be, do take a look at our website for full details of the job.
