Guidance and tools to support business change

This report presents an extensive inventory of existing tools which support businesses to prevent food waste along the whole supply chain. The core objective driving the creation of this inventory is to inform further REFRESH research, to understand current business needs, and use this information to identify potential gaps in this market.

The information collected within the inventory forms the basis of a gap analysis in Task 2.5, which will provide key information on where opportunities lie, to inform the development of decision support tools for business.  At this stage, the Gap Analysis will focus on understanding what is missing in the range of tools, what doesn’t work so well yet, and what potential improvements could be made.

These tools will be tested and refined through the REFRESH pilots, and will contribute to the development of a blueprint for wider adoption of such framework approaches to tackle food waste along value chains in many additional countries.
