Objective / Goal The citizens’ recommendations, as the outcome of the panel, will support the Commission’s work on food waste. They will also serve as guidance to help Member States in achieving the future targets in reducing food waste.

In its first panel, the Commission is gathering citizens’ insights, on how to step up action to reduce food waste in the EU. 150 randomly selected citizens, who represent the diversity of the population of the EU, are invited to debate on this issue and suggest actions that should be taken by the EU Member States, and actors in the food supply chain, citizens and other stakeholders in view of stepping up the effort to reduce food waste.

The panel meets between December 2022 and February 2023. The first session took place on 16-18 December 2022 in Brussels. It will be followed by an online session on 20-22 January 2023.

The closing session will take place on 10-12 February 2023 in Brussels.

The recordings of the first session are available here (16 December 2022) and here (18 December 2022).
