This report adopts a Bayesian hierarchical mixed-effects modelling approach, based on previous REFRESH work, to quantify the relationships between socioeconomic and demographic indicators and household food waste and the potential impact of an external intervention on food waste.

This report consists in a series of reports developing estimates for household food waste levels under four different scenarios for each European country and for the whole EU28.

This report collects 29 single food waste scenarios (28 country scenarios and a prediction scenario related to the whole EU-28), describing the amounts of food wasted every year by an average household and are based on predictions of food waste levels conducted considering the current values of different socioeconomic and demographic factors.

In 2019, REFRESH has come to an end. Since 2015, the 26 project partners from across Europe and China have made considerable progress in tackling food losses and food waste along production and supply chains with an integrated approach towards a more sustainable and responsible food system. This video summarises the main activities and findings of the project.

Since 2015, the 26 project partners from across Europe and China have made considerable progress in tackling food losses and food waste along production and supply chains with an integrated approach towards a more sustainable and responsible food system. This video summarises the main activities and findings of the project's five national platforms.

In 2019, REFRESH has come to an end. Since 2015, the 26 project partners from across Europe and China have made considerable progress in tackling food losses and food waste along production and supply chains with an integrated approach towards a more sustainable and responsible food system. This video summarises the project’s activities and findings in the field of consumer behavior.

In this short video, REFRESH ESPAÑA, the Spanish Pilot Working Platform of REFRESH, explains the issue of food waste and how the project worked to combat this widespread and difficult problem.

This report analyses two specific activities within REFRESH: First, the dissemination of the Framework for Action (“Blueprint”) that helps national governments to build Voluntary Agreements with the relevant stakeholders in the sector to reduce food loss and waste and second, work with Standardisation Bodies, specifically barcode standards used by retailers.

This report provides a detailed overview of REFRESH’s activities as well as an assessment of their outreach and impact. It also reflects on the lessons learned of REFRESH’s communication activities, including barriers and success formats.
