This report provides guidance on how to apply LCA and LCC for studies that specifically explore questions on handling side flows from the food supply chain. It is aimed at practitioners who have working knowledge of applying LCA and LCC in their field of expertise (e.g. food processing or waste handling) and policy makers that would like to get a deeper understanding on how to interpret and formulate an LCA and LCC based problem.

Food waste has been declared a priority by industry leaders, with audacious food waste reduction targets being set to signal the degree of urgency, ambition and intent of those in retail, production and government.
