The FUSIONS’ Platform meetings are prime networking opportunities to meet those stakeholders actively engaged in food waste prevention throughout Europe. Be part of the platform and let your suggestions to reduce food waste be heard. All sessions are set-up with ample opportunity for interaction and discussion.


Join the meeting and be inspired by keynotes from DG Sanco‘s Chantal Bruetschy and WRI‘s Kai Robertson, who will inform you on the latest developments in food waste policy and global food loss and waste measurements. New insights, inspiration & developments in food waste prevention and social innovation in Europe will be presented.

  • SIK’s Karin Östergren on reliable data for quantifying food waste in EU-28
