Latest European Food Waste Policy News!
In December 2014, the European Commission decided to withdraw a pending legislative proposal on waste, as part of the political discontinuity exercise carried out for the first Work Programme of the Juncker Commission. The new Circular Economy Packagewas published on December 2nd. This more ambitious package includes key actions to reduce food waste including a common measurement methodology, improved date marketing, and tools to meet the Sustainable Development Goal to halve food waste by 2030.
FUSIONS has already been working on developing a common methodology for food waste measurement and will release early next year a Quantification Manual for EU member states.
