Published on the International Day of Awareness on Food Loss and Waste Reduction, the report "Quantified actions to prevent household food waste" aims to present practices and strategies for which food waste reduction was monitored and documented, and to suggest recommendations on how local and regional authorities can promote household food waste reduction practices.

It includes a detailed analysis of 4 national or regional strategies, 4 operations focusing on food waste measurement, 2 communication campaigns, 2 actions addressing food labelling, 1 action in cooperation with small business. The lessons learnt from the documented practices and from 20 publications addressing household food waste prevention led to the identification of 4 key recommendations:

  • Promote self-assessment of individual food waste generation
  • Inform, raise awareness, promote preventive actions
  • Collaborate to improve the information on food products
  • Determine your resources, objectives, and monitoring
