Throughout Europe there is an emerging movement of social innovators fighting food waste. These food surplus entrepreneurs have developed activities to tackle food waste throughout the supply chain: prevention of food waste at the source, awareness-raising towards consumers, processing of food surplus into a product or delicious meal and redistribution of food surplus to people in need.
The Food Surplus Entrepreneurs Network is the European community bringing together these social innovators fighting food waste. The FSE Network provides them with opportunities to exchange, collaborate and showcase their work. The FSE Network operates on two levels:
– A virtual, pan-European platform which connects social innovators from across Europe to share best practices and build an active and mutually supporting community.
– Local communities where social innovators meet regularly to share their challenges and co-create solutions to increase their effectiveness, profitability and impact.
