REFRESH is pleased to announce that online registration is now available for the Food loss and waste reduction and management course that we have co-created with the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ-CIHEAM) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
 

The conference "Circular Economy - Scaling up market solutions in wholesale & retail" will take place on 17 October 2018 in Brussels, Belgium.

The REFRESH Spanish Platform has been cooperating with members on food waste reducing actions since 2016. Since then, pilot projects looking at whole supply chains, consumer acceptance studies, and food waste in hospitality have been carried out, alongside baselining and multiple meetings to share good practice and collaborate on open questions.

The REFRESH Community of Experts (CoE) is a knowledge-sharing platform which seeks to promote best practice, foster discussions and improve stakeholder engagement. The website compiles initiatives in food waste prevention and reduction, which are categorised and tagged for easy user accessibility. At the same time, the website facilitates dialogue and collaboration between stakeholders.

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.

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.

The model architecture described in this deliverable provides the framework through which data and simulations from the data on food waste at a consumer level and at a retail level can be integrated into simulation models. This report highlights the technical approaches followed to achieve model integration.

This workshop will discuss policy options to influence and reduce food waste on the consumer level. The workshop takes place within the EU research project REFRESH, kindly hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture. It will bring together policy makers and experts from research, NGOs, business and marketing agencies.
