Food losses and waste (FLW) due to inefficiencies of resource use along the entire food supply chain and corresponding negative environmental, economic and social impact has been recognised as an emerging international challenge.
Both developed and developing countries contribute to FLW although underlying reasons differ. Research activities have increased in recent years but there are still knowledge gaps which hinder comprehensive, interdisciplinary action in practice.
