Food loss

is the decrease in the quantity or quality of food resulting from decisions and actions by food suppliers in the chain, excluding retailers, food service providers and consumers (SOFA,2019).

Empirically, it refers to any food that is discarded, incinerated or otherwise disposed of along the food supply chain from harvest/slaughter/catch up to, but excluding, the retail level, and does not re-enter in any other productive utilization, such as feed or seed.

Community of Practice (CoP) on food loss reduction

Launched by heads of the three UN Rome-based agencies, it gathers practitioners and experts worldwide to share and disseminate information and practices. It offers the possibility to interact and collaborate, especially through its Forum.

International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI)

The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) conducts research to provide innovative, evidence-based policy solutions to enhance food security and fight poverty. One of its cutting-edge studies is the measuring of food loss and waste at all stages -- from production and post-production to processing, distribution and consumption -- in order to identify the origin and cost of food waste and loss at the local, regional and global level. IFPRI is currently working with the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) to better understand the levels of investment required to effectively reduce post-harvest losses through infrastructure development and technology improvements combined with best practices.
