Good practices

As part of the Farm to Fork Strategy, the Commission will continue to mobilise all players in order to prevent and reduce food losses and food waste. To this end, it has launched the EU Food Loss and Waste Prevention Hub, a "one-stop-shop" for stakeholders active in the area of food loss and waste prevention and reduction. The website aims to foster the exchange of knowledge and experience and to help disseminate the different initiatives carried out to tackle food losses and food waste, in order to inspire and drive further action on-the-ground, across the EU and beyond.

The Hub allows stakeholders to share good practices (Resources page), to find relevant information on national actions, such as policies and legislative developments (Member States pages), and to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the field (News page). Any stakeholder active in the area of food loss and waste prevention in Europe can become a member and share resources and news. Information on national actions against food loss and waste are regularly updated by Member State experts from the relevant public authorities.

The Commission invites all stakeholders to join the Hub’s growing community of experts and practitioners, working towards the Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 Target to halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer level by 2030, and reduce food losses along the food production and supply chains!

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