Food waste occurs along the entire food supply chain - at farms, factories, retailers, hotels, restaurants, schools and homes. Wasting food, however, is not only an ethical and economic issue but it also depletes the environment of limited natural resources. Additionally, methane emissions from improper food waste management cause high GHG emissions. Within the STREFOWA project (“Strategies To Reduce Food Waste in Central Europe”) therefore various activities are carried out to demonstrate that it is possible to prevent and manage food waste: Pilot actions, road shows, hackathons and instruction materials are implemented in Italy, Austria, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic for this purpose!
Within this workshop, ways shall be elaborated how long-lasting transnational cooperation between relevant stakeholders, with various backgrounds to be established, fostered and maintained.
Target Audience: Representatives from local, regional and national governments, NGO's and related food (waste) interest groups, biowaste and food waste environmental consultants and scientists, hotel managers, food retailers, food banks, waste management companies, private citizens, and everyone else interested in tackling food waste!
