Take Action against Food Waste

There are only two days left to vote for your favourite food waste reduction initiatives in Europe. 47 brilliant projects await your support in the REFRESH Food Waste Solution Contest.

REFRESH is a research project supporting EU efforts to reduce food waste by 30% by 2025. It brings together 26 partners from 12 European countries and China to work towards Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 to:

  • halve per capita food waste at the retail and consumer level
  • reduce food losses along production and supply chains
  • reduce waste management costs, and
  • maximize the value from un-avoidable food waste and packaging materials.

Our votes today went to:

The Zero Waste Aiud initiative of the Society for Responsible Consumption, which collects wasted food from the city market in Aiud, Romania and gives it to needy families.



Phenix – Giving products a second life, a social enterprise started in France to provide businesses with waste reduction services, connecting offer and demand of surplus through an innovative digital marketplace.


Cast your vote to the initiative you find most effective!
