Food Waste

Luxembourg generates, on average, 123 kilos of food waste per person each year, according to Delano and a survey carried out by the research agency TNS Ilres in 2016.

“Private households are responsible for 51.4% of this figure with 18.9kg of waste produced per resident per annum.”

According to the article by Delano, the TNS Ilres survey “showed that 56kg of food waste in Luxembourg could be avoided; 20% of which was caused solely by the misinterpretation of “best before” and “use by” dates”.
