“The food waste community knows: only what is measured can also be reduced”, points out Nora Brüggemann, coordinator of the Dialogue Forum, underlining the need for transparency in order to facilitate impactful solutions. Halfway through its cooperation, the Dialogue Forum for the Reduction of Food Waste in Wholesale and Retail can build upon numerous food waste reduction measures and, for the first time, delivers data on food waste for the entire food retail sector in Germany.
The transition to a circular economy is a systemic shift towards conducting economic activity in ways that lead to growth, resilience, and social equity while at the same using resources in new and innovative ways to close the loop.
A circular economy is functional only insofar as it works for everyone – in line with the German Circularity Act, the European Circular Economy Action Plan part of the EU Green Deal, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

CSCP Impact Map
Halfway through its cooperation, the Dialogue Forum can build upon more than 156 food waste reduction measures and, for the first time, offers data on food waste for the entire food retail sector in Germany. The agreed measures include price reductions for fruit and vegetables or products close to the best-before-date; optimisation of the process-/logistics-/ and cool-chain; or innovative demonstration projects on the valorisation of food waste streams. This interim report (in German) provides an overview of the project’s achievements and the relevant measures to reduce food waste that the members have agreed to implement within the framework of the Dialogue Forum. Dialogue Forum for Reduction of Food Waste in Wholesale and Retail is part of the German National Strategy to Reduce Food Waste.
Call for Collaboration
The most vulnerable, and therefore the hardest hit by the Corona pandemic are developing countries. There, due to high levels of informality, lack of infrastructure, and poorer living conditions, the effects of the pandemic are felt way more severely. We must, therefore, enhance our international collaboration to support these countries not only in overcoming the present crisis, but also in strengthening their resilience for the future.
If you are interested in collaborating with the CSCP, the Co-Working Space might be the right starting place for you. To find out more, contact Ramon Külpmann.
"WRAP are delighted to partner with the CSCP to find ways of transferring the collaborative approach to food waste measurement and prevention in the UK to Germany. Together with the CSCP we want to find innovative ways to decrease food waste in Germany with a broad coalition of companies, civil society actors, political institutions and scientific institutes."
