A Tesco áruházaiban és raktáraiban is komoly erőfeszítésekkel küzd az élelmiszer-hulladék csökkentéséért, de a további hatékony lépések érdekében fel kell mérni, hol mekkora mennyiségű felesleg és hulladék keletkezik a működése során. A TESCO élelmiszermentés szorosan kapcsolódik a  “Kiszélesíteni a hidat” REFRESH pilot projekthez.

Tesco has been making efforts to reduce food waste in its stores and warehouses. A new report finds that in order to take further effective steps it is necessary to scan and measure where and how much excess food and waste is generated during its operation. The food saving activities of TESCO are closely connected to the REFRESH pilot project “Broadening the bridge”.

The new report "Feeding surplus food to pigs safely" by REFRESH partner Feedback reveals that a change of law could liberate up to 2.5 million tonnes of currently wasted food from the UK’s manufacturing, retail and catering sectors to be fed to pigs.

REFRESH will participate as an exhibitor at the "Sustainable & Circular Bioeconomy, the European way" conference on October 22nd in Brussels, Belgium.

In September 2018, professionals from business, science, non-governmental and international organizations gathered in Beijing for the Food Waste Reduction-Action in China forum to advocate green consumption awareness and reduction in food waste.

The Food Waste Reduction China Action Platform is a partnership initiated by IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, CCFA and CHEARI, guided by FAO, UNEP ‘Think, Eat, Save’, and supported by REFRESH, in the aim of supporting China to achieve SDG 12.3.

The spreadsheet tool FORKLIFT was developed to help stakeholders gain a general understanding of the environmental impacts and costs for selected valorisation routes of a given food processing side flow. The approach enables the user to change different parameters and to try out how these changes affect the life cycle costs and greenhouse gas emissions. This report provides the general methodological background for the tool.

The “Night of the Market” event was organized for the second time, during which, for one night, the Budapest Wholesale Market was open to public. The first anniversary of the cooperation with the Food Bank was also celebrated at the event.

A “Mintha otthon lennénk” pilot project keretei között a rlsztvevők elkészítettek egy útmutatót, amely az azt alkalmazó rendezvényszervezők számára hasznos tanácsokkal szolgál arra, hogy hogyan lehet a rendezvényeket minél kisebb mértékű élelmiszerpazarlással megszervezni.

As part of the "Just Like Home" pilot project, participants prepared a guide that provides useful advice to event organizers who wish to organize the events with the least amount of food waste.
