Good practices

The Commission is contributing to awareness raising on food waste prevention through the production of communication materials available in all EU languages.

The Commission supports the exchange of best practices in food waste prevention through the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste and its dedicated sub-group on action and implementation.

The Horizon 2020 REFRESH project partnered with the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste in order to establish the REFRESH Community of Experts (CoE), a website open to all relevant stakeholders who wish to share their experiences in food waste prevention. The Community of Experts is a virtual resource centre which allows users to easily find and share information about food loss and waste prevention and reduction initiatives across the EU.


The Commission hosted a webinar to showcase EU actions carried out in support of SDG 12.3 on 28 November 2018. The event was organized as part of the G7 Alliance on Resource Efficiency, aiming to facilitate exchange of best practices and lessons learned in reducing food loss and waste among G7 members.
