Fight Food Waste, Feed the Planet - "A behaviourally-informed approach to tackling food waste"
About a third of all food produced globally for human consumption is lost or wasted – around 1.3 billion tonnes per year, according to the Food and Agriculture Organisation. In the EU it is estimated that around 100 million tonnes of food are wasted annually in the EU. If nothing is done, food waste could rise to over 120 million tonnes by 2020. Wasting food is not only an ethical and economic issue but it also depletes the environment of limited natural resources. All actors in the food chain have a role to play in preventing and reducing food waste whilst ensuring food safety from farm to fork. The European Commission's Directorate-General for Health and Food safety organised the international conference "Fight Food Waste, Feed the Planet" in collaboration with FAO's SAVE FOOD initiative (2015 series of international conferences on food loss and waste reduction) at the EXPO 2015 in Milan. 180 participants took part in the conference held on 15 October 2015 which was also web streamed and covered live on Twitter. The conference gathered EU and international policy makers as well as all stakeholders involved in the food chain – from industry to non-governmental organisations, the scientific community and consumers – in order to share achievements to date and foster an open and action-oriented debate. Learning and outcomes of discussions held at the "Fight Food Waste, Feed the Planet" conference, focusing in particular on the importance of effective inter-sector co-operation from farm to fork, will contribute to the setting of EU and global directions for food waste prevention. Food waste prevention is an integral part of the Circular Economy Package recently published by the European Commission to stimulate Europe's transition towards a circular economy which will boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable growth and generate new jobs.
