How to transition towards a more circular and sustainable food system?
Local food ecosystems are holistic approaches to address food from its production to its delivery and consumption via its transformation. A key remaining element, to ensure closing the loop, is to adopt a circular approach, notably in addressing food waste, seeking to reduce it at individual collective and private sector levels. The benefits can then not only be environmental but also economic.
Below some examples of success stories and good practices
