Challenge: Agri-food value chains, from primary production to final household consumption and disposal, are notoriously inefficient. Globally, a third of all food produced is lost or wasted, and in Europe alone this wastage costs the economy €143 billion each year.
Solution: The FOODRUS project seeks to create resilient local food systems in Europe by testing circular solutions to limit food losses and waste along the agri-food value chain. It will promote efficiency in the use of resources across all the stages of the value chain, using process optimisation and sustainable dietary and consumption toolkits.
Duration: November 2020 – April 2024
