Waste Clubs aims to minimize food waste. Food waste is a waste of resources, time and money. In the EU we produce 168KG of food waste per capita per year. In total 88 million tonnes of food are wasted annually in the EU, with associated costs estimated at 143 billion euros.
We need to ask ourselves the right questions so we can tackle the right problems associated with food waste. Although most food is wasted in households, businesses have a major responsbility. Awareness, production, distribution, marketing, knowledge – each business can contribute to the fight against waste in a different way.
