The project aims to ignite the behavioural transition to responsible food consumption and preparation, reducing food waste, as well as improving source separation and composting of food waste. Activities include the development of tools and materials for responsible food consumption, preparation and waste management, which will eventually allow for replicability in the future. The project covers different target sectors such as households, schools, and the hospitality industry.
