Food Loss and Waste

Under the auspices of the Finnish Presidency to the Council of the EU, on 12 December 2019 the Commission is organising a public conference on food loss and waste prevention in the framework of the 7th meeting of the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste, to help define the EU action agenda and path towards the global target of halving food waste by 2030.

Speakers and audience will interactively discuss the Platform’s recommendations for action in food loss and waste prevention, published on that day, and their role in mobilising EU action towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target 12.3. In line with the integrated, holistic approach needed to tackle food waste, the Platform recommendations will address action required, at each stage of the food supply chain, including food redistribution, and involving all key players from the public and private sectors.

The event is open to all stakeholders interested and/or active in food loss and waste prevention. Given the limited capacity of the venue, it is advisable to register online as soon as possible (deadline: 6 December 2019).
