EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste launch meeting

21 December 2016

On 29 November 2016 the launch meeting of the EU Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste took place. The platform was founded as the key forum at EU level to help all players identify and implement food waste prevention solutions to achieve the related sustainable development goals. The Platform will promote the rethinking a food value chain where food waste is minimised and value gained from food produced is maximised.
In sync with the Platform’s objectives, NVC will host an interactive European workshop on fighting food waste via better packaging at the 13th Annual Packaging Design and Innovation Conference in Rome on 16 March 2017 (Press Release EC, 29 November 2016).
