Circular Agronomics: preliminary results on consumers behaviour regarding food waste
It is not unsurprising, therefore, that one of the key targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals is to reduce food waste globally by 50% by 2030. In line with this, the EU Farm to Fork strategy has proposed to set a legally binging target to reduce food waste by 2023.
Our colleagues at TEAGASC have analysed consumer behaviour regarding food waste and show some preliminary results. Simple measures like meal planning and shopping lists, along with positive behaviours among our peer groups and knowing how to control and minimise our food waste, can be used to nudge consumers in a positive direction of food waste behaviour.
