A principios de 2017 se ha realizado la primera fase del proyecto piloto “Gastrofira”, consistente en una cuantificación del desperdicio alimentario generado en el servicio de catering de la Feria de Barcelona durante la celebración de una importante feria internacional. Para tener una visión global, se ha tenido en cuenta tanto el desperdicio generado en cocina como el generado por los comensales. Esta primera cuantificación servirá de línea base para medir el impacto positivo de ciertas intervenciones que se realizarán en próximas ferias.
In early 2017 the first actIvity of the pilot project "Gastrofira" has been completed. Food waste generated by the catering service of Feria de Barcelona (trade fair organisation) was quantified during an international event. Food waste data from kitchen and dining room has been gathered in order to establish a baseline for upcoming events’ reduction interventions.

The first official meeting took place in March 2017.

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.
