Food waste is significant problem and its estimated that in the EU 20 percent of the total food produced is lost or wasted. Households generate more than half of the total of the 47 million tonnes of food waste with a majority of 70% of it coming from household, food service and retail. Public and commercial foodservices is an area where it has been demonstrated that publicly lead policy and action can make a difference. In Denmark for instance with an annual number of 641 million meals served in large kitchens including public catering, canteen dining and hotels & restaurants, it is estimated that approx. 80.000 tonnes of food is wasted annually. Studies have shown great potential for reducing food waste in Danish foodservice units. The Danish Big Food – Less Waste network now invites for a mini seminar that uses the Danish case as a point of departure to foster action, innovation and policymaking focused on food waste mitigation in the out of home eating industry. The presentation introduces the alliance and touch upon the potentials of data driven strategies. It presents ideas for action and policy based on realtime datainsight.
