Legal & Economic Barriers

The aim of this survey is to identify the legal and economic barriers to food loss and waste prevention. If you are eager to contribute meaningfully on how to halt food loss and food waste in Europe, click on the link below to provide your insights on barriers and solutions to prevent food losses and food waste.  

The survey has been designed to cover all stages of the food value chain, from farm to fork, including public entities that are responsible for organic (food) waste collection and disposal. Depending on the profile of your organization and its role within the Food Value Chain, the survey takes about 15 minutes to be completed.

Results of the survey will be used to prepare policy recommendations for national and European legislators with a twofold aim:

  • Address existing current legal impediments at European, national and regional level on the prevention of food losses and food waste;
  • Define policy recommendations that can help address the economic and behavioral aspects of food loss and food waste through new legislation.
    Thank you in advance for your participation to the survey. Results will be shared here on the FOODRUS website.
