Retailers take action to prevent food waste

15 Nov 2012

Retailers have committed to take voluntary action in waste prevention, particularly on food waste. At the Retail Forum in Brussels on 10 October, 19 Retail Forum members pledged to run campaigns raising awareness on waste and food waste prevention and reduction. This initiative will complement relevant EU policies on waste, as set out in the Roadmap to a Resource-Efficient Europe, for example halving edible food waste by 2020, making waste a resource and virtually eliminating landfilling.
