No time to waste: using data to drive down food waste

  • The Food Loss Index (FLI) measures losses for key commodities in a country across the supply chain, up to but not including retail. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is its custodian.
  • The Food Waste Index measures food waste at retail and consumer level (households and out of home consumption). UNEP is its custodian. In contrast to the FLI, it measures total food waste (rather than loss or waste associated with specific commodities).
