D3.2 Roadmap For Tracking And Reducing Bread Waste In Bakery-Retailer Interface

Mesiranta, Nina; Närvänen, Elina; Pietrangeli, Roberta; et al.


This is the second deliverable (D3.2) of WP3 in the LOWINFOOD project. The deliverable presents three country-specific roadmaps for the bread value chain stakeholders created as a result of stakeholder dialogues held in Italy, Finland, and Sweden from November 2021 until September 2022. The objective of the dialogues was to identify, together with the bakeries and other stakeholders of the bread value chain, new social and organisational solutions to reduce and prevent the loss and waste of bread products along the whole value chain. The dialogues included discussions about the current problems and how they could be solved. Each of the three roadmaps includes a description of the country’s bakery sector, identification of key stakeholders for bread loss and waste reduction, as well as suggested actions for bakeries, retailers, and other stakeholders. Joint conclusions and lessons learnt from the three stakeholder dialogues are presented at the end of the document.
