GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food Waste Assessment Tools

Title:
Food Waste Assessment Tools

Abstract:
The first step in reducing waste is to measure and track the amount, type of, and the source of the food and packaging waste. A food and packaging waste audit serves as the foundation for reduction efforts. Information on the waste type (i.e., bell peppers or chicken breasts) and reason for loss (i.e., over-preparation or improper cooking) is critical to make meaningful changes. The tools included here will help you conduct a food and packaging waste audit.
