Reduction. Recovery. Reuse.

i-REXFO's objective is the enhancement of food waste, their reduction, with a innovative approach. The project focuses on waste produced by the food industry, agricultural companies, large retailers, HORECAs and consumers themselves.

The importance of i-REXFO project

According to a FAO survey, around one third of the food produced for human consumption, roughly 1,3 billions tons, of which 80% still consumable, is lost or wasted. This happens while one fourth of the EU population (125 million people) is risking poverty and social exclusion and 11% cannot afford a fish or meat meal every two days. If we extend this consideration to the whole planet, the figures become ashaming.

Reducing food waste

i-REXFO designs, demonstrates and transfers an innovative development and business model to reduce food waste. The holistic approach of i-REXFO optimizes the integration, interaction and communication between all those responsible for the food cycle, intended to produce, distribute, use and end the life of food.
