Towards Project Result 2
Being our main aim bringing awareness to the challenges that our food systems cause, the Project Result 2 focuses on the creation of a manual for food professionals and trainers.
The manual will be potentially exploitable by any citizen interested in the topic of reducing food waste while giving new life to traditional recipes, following a farm-to-fork approach. VET providers’ contribution in this matter is crucial: in this way, they can enhance the culture of food waste prevention and develop new positive behaviors.
But this can also be achieved through constant dialogues and cooperation with stakeholders from the food value chain, being a key piece in the fight against food waste.
Additionally, the use of a web-based application for food waste monitoring will help to make better use of local products from a food waste prevention perspective.
The next steps, foreseen by the Project result 2, are:
- Transfer and capitalization of innovative practices to track food waste.
- Drafting of the manual.
- Planning and promoting awareness initiatives on Food Waste Prevention and Food Waste Management.
