Af Violeta Stancu and Liisa Lähteenmäki
Household food waste is one of the main contributors to the food waste amounts across the food supply chain. This report is based on a study conducted in September 2017 by MAPP Research Centre – Research on Value Creation in the Food Sector. The study aimed to examine consumer food waste, with a focus on consumer perceptions and practices related to food waste. A survey was completed by 508 respondents in Denmark to provide insights into self-reported consumer food waste, consumer understanding and perceptions of food waste, household food-related practices as well as individual and household characteristics with a role in food waste.
