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.
