Hungarian Food Authority Provides Guidelines To Reduce Food Waste
Hungary’s food safety authority Nébih has prepared guidelines for the food industry, catering, and civil organisations aimed at preventing or reducing the production of food waste.

According to a statement from Nebih, an annual 1.8 million tonnes of food is wasted in Hungary, a large part of which could be saved. Nébih started a programme dubbed No Leftovers three years ago aimed at reducing that waste.

The statement noted that households dumped the largest amounts of food, but added that it was important to raise awareness of the problem across the whole of the food chain.

Representatives of the food industry and trade, research institutes and universities have contributed to the Nebih programme, which is also supported by the European Commission, the statement said.
