Combating Food Waste in the EU brings together EU institutions, national governments, NGO’s, retailers, food and drink industry, packaging industry, compliance schemes and waste management industry to assess and further develop winning strategies to prevent and reduce food waste in the EU.
At a time when as much as one third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted every year, our conference gives you a unique opportunity to meet all the major stakeholders and policy makers.
