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.

The United Nations Rio+20 world summit, held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012, aimed to secure renewed political commitment to sustainable development. To follow up on the conference, the European Commission wishes to develop specific actions and concrete measures to make sustainable development a reality, within the EU and globally.

On 24 October 2012, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva called on international food communities and all players  in the global food system to join together in eradicating  hunger from the earth "within our lifetimes". Opening the bi-annual Terra Madre conference, organised in Turin by Slow Food International, he said achieving zero hunger would require eliminating food losses and waste. The Director-General said it was time to take "the next big step" in the fight against malnutrition.
