Our global anti-food waste campaign toolkit

Think.Eat.Save. Reduce Your Foodprint is a global anti-food waste campaign. The campaign draws attention to the serious issues resulting from the high volume of perfectly edible food that is wasted, and seeks to change attitudes and behaviours so that food waste can be significantly reduced around the world. We are targeting relevant policies, programmes, actions and behavioural changes by governments, businesses, civil society organizations, households and individuals.
