Abstract

Food waste and the food wastage are nowadays a major problem mainly in the developed countries because of numerous environmental impacts such as exploitation of the croplands, surplus production, carbon-dioxide emissions, waste problems etc. Food waste also represents the economic problems: it has a financial loading, which is mainly at the population, who purchase products and later they generate the waste from that. In addition to the environmental and economic issues, there is also social problem: hundreds of thousands of people live in extreme poverty and hunger, not only in Europe. Within the STREFOWA project – which is supported by the European Union – the action has been undertaken in order to reduce the amount of food waste by implementing different innovative pilots in some countries of Central Europe. In Hungary, the main actor of the pilot is the retail sector, which has the possibility to affect the population to reduce the amount of the food waste, influencing them to change wrong habits and consider the possibility of food donation for needy people.
