The co-creation process with local stakeholders from civil society, the food industry, and other relevant actors results in a holistic food waste strategy, tailored to your city or municipality.
Time for impact! The implementation of actions coming from the food waste strategy leads to a reduction in food waste, financial savings, and a healthy environment.
Case studies from local governments
Specifically for Leuven, we estimate that food loss is responsible for 16.3 tonnes of CO2. So even in our city there are still climate gains to be made in this area. We now want to map this out so that we can set up targeted actions. Preventing food loss and reusing surpluses is an important ambition of the Leuven food strategy.David Dessers, alderman of Alderman of mobility, climate and sustainability, agriculture and consumption in Leuven
The extended network that FoodWIN has built is like a pool of inspiration to us, it brings clarity about legislative frameworks and opportunities for new actions. For our food strategy, we can always count on the inspiring examples FoodWIN is involved.Arnout Vercruysse, Coordinator Food Act 13
