Food waste: From farm to fork… to garbage? 

 

 

The seminar, part of the cycle L’Europe dans mon assiette / Europe on the menu, will deal with the issue of food waste in Europe, with a Swedish and French perspective.

 

Both speakers will address questions such as: What is the life cycle of Food? What are the social influences on food intake? What are the regulation / governance of Food Regulation? What is the role of the civil society and NGOs in mobilizing the various economic actors in the mobilization in the fight against food waste?
