The Dutch REFRESH pilot working platform Taskforce Circular Economy in Food will organise together with TCEF members Hutten Catering and Rabobank an interactive event for TCEF Members, Dutch Champions 12.3 and international frontrunner organisations.

This report presents insights about in-home food waste, including: the amounts wasted, household’s food prevention practices, and the influence of motivation, abilities, and opportunities on household food waste. It is based on a large-scale consumer survey in Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary, and Spain. 

On the 28th of November 2017, EU commissioner Andriukaitis (Health and Food Safety) and Minister Schouten (Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, NL) visited the ‘Food Waste Factory’ in Veghel, located in THREE SIXTY, the heart of the Dutch ecosystem for circular economy in food. They met with the Dutch frontrunners on food waste prevention.

This report identifies drivers of food waste across the supply chain in five food categories: bread, dairy, potatoes/tomatoes, prepared meals (sandwiches), and processed meat/poultry. These drivers were linked with the main waste streams they generate. 

The progress of the Refresh project and the latest initiatives of the members of the Platform were presented, the next steps to be followed in the coming months were also discussed. We enjoyed both an interesting and entertaining program.

Az áruházlánc a szektor képviselői közül a Közép-Európai régióban elsőként publikált ilyen adatokat, mert meggyőződése, hogy az átláthatóság és a mérés nélkülözhetetlen ahhoz, hogy még hatékonyabb lépéseket tegyen a pazarlás visszaszorítása érdekében.
