Food Waste: Cutting losses along the supply chain

In response to the European Commission's study that estimated annual food waste in the EU at approximately 179kg per person, the European Parliament adopted a resolution in January 2012 on how to avoid food waste. The resolution is aimed at identifying a series of strategies for a more efficient food chain in the EU. Among these strategies, the design of new packaging that will increase longevity of goods plays an important role. How achievable is the 50% reduction of food waste by 2025? What measures should be taken to reach this objective?
