Lesson 3: Campaigns EU

The EU Food Loss and Waste Prevention Hub is a “one stop shop” for stakeholders active in the area of ​​food loss and waste prevention and reduction. You can join and are invited to build a growing community of experts and professionals, working towards Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 Target to halve per capita food waste at retail and consumer level by 2030, and reduce food losses throughout the food production and supply chains.

The website allows you 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). The main objective of this platform is 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 ground, across the EU and beyond.
Any stakeholder active in the area of food loss and waste prevention in Europe can become a member and share resources and news. We also welcome contributions from international organisations with a global impact, as well as from national authorities from non-EU countries. In order to share information, you need to register by creating an EU LOGIN account (please find detailed instructions on the Sign in page). We encourage you to read the Terms and conditions carefully, before submitting content to the website.

You do not need to register in order to navigate through the website. All pages are publicly available. Member States pages are kept up-to-date by national experts, appointed by Member States’ competent authorities.

The link between healthy people, healthy societies and a healthy planet puts sustainable food systems at the heart of the European Green Deal, the EU’s sustainable and inclusive growth strategy. It is designed to boost the economy, improve people’s health and quality of life, and care for nature.

Food waste is a big issue! Tackle this issue by becoming a Food Hero! In March 2019 we crownded three Food Heroes in three categories during an award show at the CFIA Expo in Rennes: EnVie for Fruit & Vegetables, In Ovo for Male Animals and Mussella for Fish & Seafood.
