Don’t be a food waster

Don’t be a food waster

The social awareness campaign ‘Don’t be a food waster’ wants to make all audiences proud to say ‘I am not a food waster’ with the ultimate goal of reducing food waste at all levels in the food system. We will target all actors in the supply chain, however particular attention will be focused on consumers,  concerning  the volume of food which is needlessly wasted. We will increase awareness of the role that consumers and  supply chain actors can play in combatting the problem and encourage action to significantly reduce waste throughout the food supply chain.
