WP4 Stakeholder involvement
The main aim of WP4 is to involve different stakeholders (farmers, food industry, retail, hospitality sector, consumers, charity, ministry, legislation, research etc.) in Finland, Sweden, Norway and Germany, to discuss the findings of WP1-3, and decide on the best approaches to reduce food waste in the food chain, and find optimal uses for the waste streams.
In this WP well-designed workshops will be held in each country. The causes for food waste, and therefore possible solutions, can be rather complex and require cooperation throughout the food chain. Therefore, the used methods will be reflexive, flexible and iterative. In the workshops the waste flows are visualized, best waste reduction practices are discussed, and action plans are drafted: naming the key stakeholders, critical steps, and time-tables. As a result “a framework towards more efficient food chain” will be.
