UNDERSTANDING AND EVALUATING ON-FARM FOOD LOSS AND WASTE IN THE UK
|Name:||Understanding and Evaluating On-Farm Food Loss and Waste|
|Overview:||This published report is the output of an inter-disciplinary, cross-university team of researchers from Cranfield University, University of Reading and University of Leeds in a project funded by the Transforming UK Food Security Annual Synergy Fund. Part 1 of the report presents the causes of on-farm loss and waste in the UK and the prescribed management/solutions in extant literature. We highlight the urgent need for increased research, synthesis of agronomy and supply chain insights, and improved compliance of on-farm food waste management practices to the UK government’s food waste hierarchy.|
Part 2 is a portfolio review of the Transforming UK Food Security Programme projects, ascertaining the consideration of food loss and waste at various stages of the food supply chain.
