This forum will be occasion to look at food waste from a hands-on perspective and explore new tracks in addressing the issue.
Featuring keynote speeches from representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Italian Parliament, the conference will then investigate how consumer co-operatives deal with food waste throughout the supply chain and vis-à-vis the consumer. It will also give attendees the chance to learn about the new ECORYS behavioural study on food choices and eating habits as well as to listen to the latest achievements of the EU project “EU FUSIONS”. Last but not least, the conference will feature the opportunity to visit the Coop Italy’s “Supermarket of the Future”: a not-to-miss trip into the future of food retailing.
The European Commission together with the European Community of Consumer Co-operatives and ANCC/Coop Italy are pleased to invite you to the conference: “Tackling Food Waste: The Consumer Co-operative Way”, taking place the day after the European Commission’s event: “Fight Food Waste, Feed the Planet”
