This report concludes the research from the FUSIONS Work Package (WP) 1 “Reliable data and information sources, trends and assessment criteria” The aim of this report is to serve as documentation for the existing knowledge base with respect to the socioeconomic and environmental impact of food waste and to provide new information on how to proceed towards socio-economic and environmental assessment of the impacts of food waste. According to the FUSIONS definition the term food waste is referring to a fraction of food and inedible parts removed from the food supply chain going to recovery or disposal (incl. composting). The impact assessment covers the following topics: - impacts on health and nutrition of food waste - socio-economic impacts of food waste - social impacts from food redistribution organisations, such as food banks or social supermarkets - environmental impacts of food waste A baseline assessment was carried out to receive estimates for current food waste in EU, to identify data gaps and to draw recommendations. The findings shall serve as a basis for further research.

Abstract

This report concludes the research from the FUSIONS Work Package (WP) 1 “Reliable data and information sources, trends and assessment criteria” The aim of this report is to serve as documentation for the existing knowledge base with respect to the socioeconomic and environmental impact of food waste and to provide new information on how to proceed towards socio-economic and environmental assessment of the impacts of food waste. According to the FUSIONS definition the term food waste is referring to a fraction of food and inedible parts removed from the food supply chain going to recovery or disposal (incl. composting). The impact assessment covers the following topics: - impacts on health and nutrition of food waste - socio-economic impacts of food waste - social impacts from food redistribution organisations, such as food banks or social supermarkets - environmental impacts of food waste A baseline assessment was carried out to receive estimates for current food waste in EU, to identify data gaps and to draw recommendations. The findings shall serve as a basis for further research.
