LOWINFOOD - Multi-actor design of low-waste food value chains through the demonstration of innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste

Faculty or school: Faculty of Management and Business | Organisation sub unit: Business Studies | Lab or field: Marketing, Management and Organisations

Objective for the project is to co-design, together with actors of the food chain, low-waste value chains by supporting the demonstration of a portfolio of innovations in the fruits & vegetables, bakery products and fish value chains, as well as in a-home and out-of-home consumption.

This four-year project is funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 programme. There are 27 partners involved from 12 European Countries. The project is led by assistant professor Clara Cicatiello from University of Tuscia, Italy. 

In this project, researchers from the Wastebusters group (TAU) will examine how waste of bakery products can be reduced through co-operation between bakeries and retailers, and how household food waste can be reduced by using a mobile application.
