Mit dem neuen EU-Projekt REFRESH ("Resource Efficient Food and dRink for the Entire Supply cHain") werden innovative Ansätze zur Vermeidung und Verwertung von Lebensmittelabfällen entlang aller Abschnitte der Versorgungskette untersucht. Hierfür kooperieren 26 Partner aus 12 europäischen Ländern und China, um gemeinsam auf das Ziel hinzuarbeiten, die Lebensmittelverschwendung in Europa bis 2025 um 30% zu reduzieren und übertragbare Lösungsansätze zu entwickeln. Das Projekt läuft von Juli 2015 bis Juni 2019.


This forum will be occasion to look at food waste from a hands-on perspective and explore new tracks in addressing the issue.

At this final conference of the EU project RESFOOD, practitioners and researchers of the water sector and the food chain, large companies and SME’s, will find out about new technologies designing a sustainable food chain.

Op 15 september 2015 is het project 'REFRESH' (Resource Efficient Food and dRink for the Entire Supply cHain) van start gegaan. Het doel van het project is een bijdrage te leveren aan de realisatie van 30% minder voedselverspilling in Europa in 2025, het verminderen van de afvalbeheerkosten en het maximaliseren van de waarde van onvermijdbaar voedselafval en verpakkingsmaterialen. 26 Partners uit twaalf Europese landen en China werken samen aan dit doel. REFRESH loopt van juli 2015 tot juni 2019 en wordt gefinancierd door het Horizon 2020-programma van de EU.

The EU-funded project FUSIONS has fed thousands of people on food that would otherwise be wasted in some of Europe's biggest cities. Raising awareness is part of a strategy to reduce food waste. The project is also examining ways to encourage businesses and households to use food more efficiently and discard less. Its proposals could increase resource efficiency along the supply chain, cut bills for shoppers, and contribute to a sustainable food system.

16 September 2015 marks the start of the EU Horizon 2020 funded project "Resource Efficient Food and dRink for the Entire Supply cHain" (REFRESH). 26 partners from 12 European countries and China will work towards the project's goal to contribute towards the objectives of reducing food waste across Europe by 30% by 2025, reducing waste management costs, and maximizing the value from unavoidable food waste and packaging materials. REFRESH will run from July 2015 - June 2019.


After 3 editions of the OuiShare Fest organized in Paris, the most important international meeting of the collaborative economy which gathers together all the global sector's global leaders, innovators and experts, OuiShare invites you to participate in OuiShare Fest BCN 2015.

This conference is designed as a multidisciplinary deliberation forum. It aims to provide an opportunity to discuss significant challenges facing the global food system in the 21st Century.

This four day event brings together young farmers, producers, food professionals, and activists from all over the world to learn from each other and develop solutions for the future of food. Alongside the Expo 2015, WFTP will feature a Food Academy for young producers and professionals, a Hackathon on contemporary food challenges, lectures and discussions, interactive workshops, public events, and food and entertainment.

This congress will assess the challenges associated with postharvest loss within the framework of metrics and measurements. The focus is to enable the development of better tools and interventions to prevent postharvest loss for smallholders in developing countries. The event will provide networking opportunities for professionals from academic, governments, non-governmental organizations, foundations, and private entities.
