The IFWC is as a non-profit organisation committed to combating food waste across food services value chains. We work as a value-add hub in Europe that enhances and scales what works locally in food waste reduction.

Through the IFWC, our Members (companies and organisations) seek to provide collective responses to the issue of food waste. We take food services as an entry and anchor point to work innovatively across the value chain all the way to concrete action in restaurants to assert the value of food.

We focus our actions around three value-added categories:

  • Thought leadership : updating sectorial challenges and track progress against targets at European level and producing guidance on food waste related innovation activity
  • Stakeholder engagement : building awareness, education, and engagement amongst innovators, and businesses
  • Promotion of priority solutions : supporting impact measurement, stimulating, disseminating innovation and driving adoption of effective solutions
