The fourth NLWA Waste Prevention Exchange will focus on food waste prevention and examine different approaches and how to secure long term behaviour change. REFRESH scientific coordinator Hilke Bos-Brouwers (Wageningen University & Research) will give a kenote on "Food waste - towards half as much: Initiatives & programmes that encourage public participation"

An online database, FoodWasteExplorer, has been developed to aid identification of market opportunities and better waste utilisation. It contains compositional data for agri-food waste streams. Representatives from the food industry, researchers, independent consultants, and animal nutritional experts are sought to help evaluate FoodWasteExplorer prior to wider release.

This peer-reviewed paper finds that consumer food waste is influenced by country, age, student status, and belief that the family wastes too much, and suggests how policy interventions can be designed to target these drivers.

This scientific paper explains the methodology used to assess household drivers of food waste and presents results on main food waste drivers and points for intervention.
