Le gaspillage alimentaire, en plus d’avoir des conséquences sur l’environnement, soulève des questions économiques et éthiques. Le Parlement européen s’apprête à adopter de nouvelles mesures visant à réduire de moitié les denrées alimentaires jetées d’ici à 2030. Selon les estimations de l’Organisation des Nations unies pour l'alimentation et l'agriculture, 793 millions de personnes souffrent de malnutrition dans le monde. D’après Eurostat, environ 9,6 % de la population européenne ne parvient pas à s’offrir un repas de qualité un jour sur deux. Des chiffres particulièrement inquiétants lorsqu’on sait que 20 % de la nourriture produite dans l’Union européenne est perdue ou gaspillée. Le gaspillage se produit à toutes les étapes de la chaîne alimentaire, de la production agricole à la consommation finale.

At Chesterbrook Elementary School in McClean, VA, every student learns how to separate waste into categories like recyclables, food to be donated, upcycling bins, and general trash.

Attention should also be drawn to: the Commission’s Europe 2020 strategy, and in particularly its objectives as regards reducing greenhouse gases and combating poverty; the problem of food waste, which, at this critical time, is assuming increasing significance for increasingly broad swathes of public opinion, and the many initiatives launched by associations, research organisations and public bodies, which are expanding in all the Member States, achieving great success and attracting considerable attention. An awareness-raising campaign at European level would put this issue into sharper focus by presenting it in a more unified way, and could support and reinforce all the initiatives which have already been successfully set in motion.

The need to improve food waste data and information was identified as a significant issue during the development of the National Waste Policy (2009) and the National Waste Report (2010).

This report collates and reviews the quality and nature of 1262 food waste studies conducted in Australia, ranging from regional waste management authority reporting and research papers to national studies.

The report answers three questions: what do we know about food waste in Australia; how good is the knowledge; and who are the knowledge holders? See also.
