From Waste to Worth: New EU Targets Shine Light on Food Waste

In July 2023, the European Commission finally set out legally binding food waste targets for its member states. If adopted, EU member states will be required to collectively reduce food waste by 10% in manufacturing and processing, and by 30% per capita jointly in retail, foodservice, and households by the end of 2030. For retailers and all other stakeholders, the targets serve as a call for intensified action.
