Tackling food waste and losses in the EU

Up to 50% of food gets wasted in EU households, supermarkets, restaurants and along the food supply chain each year, while 79 million EU citizens live beneath the poverty line and 16 million depend on food aid from charitable institutions. The public hearing organised on Wednesday, 24 October 2012 by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on the civil society´s contribution for prevention and reduction of food losses and food waste aimed at stimulating debate and highlight thoughts and ideas from different interested parties.
At the EU level, the reduction and prevention of food waste are important issues in the wider context of food security and resource efficiency. Several speakers made presentation on food waste prevention and reduction, and brought their insight and experiences to the debate. This event is feeding into an on-going EESC own-initiative on food waste and food losses.
