Life in urban areas generates high levels of food waste. Today, each European citizen wastes around 173 kg of food each year. More than two-thirds of this are lost during distribution, by restaurants and catering firms, and when cooking at home. Very little of this biowaste is recycled. INRA has carried out a prospective study to identify the different methods that could be implemented at each stage, and by different actors, to reduce these losses and waste.
