Urban Food Actions Platform

How can we minimize food losses in the stages of the food supply chain? How can we minimize the amount of food thrown away by households?

We will explore different ways of promoting the food waste “pyramid”, from reducing food loss and waste, facilitating food recovery and redistribution for human consumption and improving the collection of waste for biogas or organic fertilizers (city-wide composting plans).
