About this initiative


The standard common EU methodology for quantifying food waste is part of the EU action plan for the circular economy (where products are designed to be energy-efficient, long-lasting and recylced as much as possible). It will generate reliable results that can be compared over time and between different EU countries. The methodology will describe the data to be collected and may also include minimum quality requirements for the data to be reported.
