Co-financed by the EU Commission LIFE Programme and led by the Italian network for VET, ENAIP NET, the LIFE FOSTER project aims at reducing waste in the restaurant industry.
The project focuses on these main fields: TRAINING AND EDUCATION, PREVENTION AND COMMUNICATION.
The interconnection between environmental, social and economic dynamics identifies training and education as key instruments to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the UN (SDG 2 Zero Hunger; SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production).
The project will be implemented in the following countries: France, Italy, Malta, Spain.
LIFE FOSTER consists entirely of direct and indirect actions aimed at raising awareness about the problem of food waste and optimal food storage.
Since various initiatives have already been undertaken in several EU countries to raise awareness among citizens, producers, canteen and supermarkets, the LIFE FOSTER project has chosen to target the restaurant industry.
Life Foster will complement the other initiatives taken and will be able to fight and complete the missing chain link: downstream respect to producers and upstream respect to citizens.
