Zero Waste Scotland 190pxResearchers from the University of Leeds and ACR+ member Zero Waste Scotland will examine food waste during and after lockdown periods and develop interventions to support sustainable consumer behaviours.

During the first national lockdown of 2020, self-reported levels of food waste in the UK fell by 34%, the sharpest fall on record. Now a new national research project has been set up to understand that positive change, and to use those insights to help citizens to waste less food when the pandemic ends. The 18-month research project has been awarded funding of GBP 328,000 as part of the UK Research and Innovation’s rapid response to Covid-19.
