We will pay special attention to the drivers of FLW, the business case to reduce it, simple and advanced technologies, and the economic impact of food loss and waste reduction. But also the role and responsibilities of the various stakeholders will be addressed, the difficulty of consumer behavior change, and how to create a conducive policy environment and an actively involved private sector.
