Too good for the bin! - An Initiative of the Federal Government to Avoid Food Waste

Every year, around twelve million tons of food waste are generated along the entire food supply chain in Germany, six million of which are generated in private households alone. The National Strategy for Reducing Food Waste adopted by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) in 2019 focuses not only on private households, but also on the sectors of primary production, processing, wholesale and retail, and out-of-home catering. The aim is to halve food waste in Germany at retail and consumer level by 2030 and reduce food waste along the production and supply chain.

At www.zugutfuerdietonne.de interested parties can find facts about food waste, tips for a more sustainable use of food and creative recipes for the best leftovers. In the #restereloaded tutorials, "Too good for the bin!" regularly offers tips for reducing food waste. On the Twitter channel @zgfdt, news on the topic of food value estimation is tweeted daily.
