The EU-funded project FUSIONS has fed thousands of people on food that would otherwise be wasted in some of Europe's biggest cities. Raising awareness is part of a strategy to reduce food waste. The project is also examining ways to encourage businesses and households to use food more efficiently and discard less. Its proposals could increase resource efficiency along the supply chain, cut bills for shoppers, and contribute to a sustainable food system.
The European Commission's DG Research & Innovation issued an article about FUSIONS on 11 Sept 2015. Many of FUSIONS' partner organisations now co-operate in REFRESH, making it a follow-up project.
