A third of all food is wasted

“ “Reducing food waste is one of the three most important things we can do to reverse global warming” 

Chad Frischmann, Climate expert


Flavour is a European collaborative project involving 10 partners from Belgium, France and the United Kingdom, which is investigating new ways to

  • value food
  • reduce food waste
  • increase job opportunities for the long-term unemployed


  • because food waste is the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases worldwide.
  • because approximately 800 million people worldwide don’t have enough to eat to be healthy and lead active lives.
  • because work in food surplus offers new opportunities for a sustainable job


We can avoid waste as much as possible by producing, buying and eating food in a new way. If there are then still surpluses, we can:

  • process surpluses into new, longer lasting products
  • distribute surpluses via platforms to food banks and social organisations
