Az Agrár Marketing Centrum szervezésében szeptemberben tartották az idei Országos Mezőgazdasági Kiállítás és Vásárt. Az OMÉK 2017 elsődleges célja, hogy szakmai szempontból bemutassa a fejlett, hatékony, környezettudatos vállalkozásokra, családi gazdaságokra, kis- és őstermelőkre épülő mezőgazdaságot, és annak értékeit, eredményeit megismertesse a szakmával és a nagyközönséggel. Az esemény kiemelt témája volt élelmiszerpazarlás elleni küzdelem.

The Hungarian pilot working platform (PWP) meeting was organised in a conference form in line with the National Agriculture and Food Exhibition and Fair. The event took place in September 2017 and the main organizer was the Agricultural Marketing Agency. The primary objective of the event was to present professionally the development of advanced, efficient, environmentally conscious businesses, family farms, small and primary producers, and introduce its values ​​and results to the profession and to the general public. One of the main focus points of the event was the fight against food waste.

A projekt fő célja, hogy feloldja a „virtuális igények okozta túlkínálat” paradoxonát, és közös alapot teremtsen az catering ellátási láncban (a megrendelőtől a fogyasztóig) keletkező élelmiszer-hulladékok problémájának megértéséhez, a lehetséges megoldásokhoz és a témával kapcsolatos tudatosság növeléséhez. Célunk egy a jelenleginél reálisabb kereslet-kínálat egyensúly megteremtése egy olyan speciális fogyasztási helyzetben, ahol általában nem a vendéglátás költségei jelentik az elsődleges döntési szempontot.

In April 2017 The Hungarian Pilot Working Platform initiated and started executing the pilot project “Just like at home”. The aim of the project is to dissolve the paradox of “oversupply by virtual needs” and creating a common basis of understanding and awareness about the issue of food waste in the whole chain (from caterer to consumer) by matching a realistic/real demand/supply in this special type of consumer scenario where the cost of food is not a primary selector.

A new digital network has been launched to encourage collaboration and bring together expertise from across Europe and beyond in a focussed response to the global issue of food waste. The Community of Experts (CoE) aims to help drive action at every level of the supply chain by empowering individuals, organisations and nations through the sharing of skills, knowledge and resources needed to act against food waste.

The report presents a summary of the first official food waste monitoring in Flanders at chain level and for each step in the agri-food chain. It also explains the framework, objective and approach of the monitoring. 

To reduce food waste, a dynamically adjustable shelf life and discounting strategies can be used by a retailer selling perishable products. In this paper both strategies are investigated and evaluated in terms of profit, waste reduction and shortages.

The Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 2 Infoweek will take place in Brussels 14.-17. November 2017. The week-long event brings together infoday, brokerage, dissemination with a focus on digitisation and a high-level bioeconomy policy event. REFRESH will be presented at the "Bioeconomy Village" during the policy days on 16.-17. November.

All 26 REFRESH partners gathered to discuss midterm progress in the project and build synergies between work in different parts of REFRESH. The meeting took place in Budapest on 07. and 08. September 2017.

This workshop will present preliminary findings from the REFRESH project on opportunities for improving EU policies relevant to food waste prevention and valorisation. It is directed at policymakers and high-level experts in food waste from business, research, and civil society. Participation is by invitation only.
