In Germany, thousands of tons of food end up in the garbage every year and private households contribute a large part to that. Against this background, the Dr. Rainer Wild Foundation investigated with the scientific model project "rescue refrigerator" how the appreciation for food among consumers can be increased and at the same time waste in food retailing can be reduced.
In the context of the 2nd digital table talk "Foodwaste – Consumer sensibility and opportunities at the point of sale" the project was presented in an impulse. Afterwards Marlene Münsch, as an expert of the panel discussion, discussed together with the participants consumers can be supported in their efforts to avoid food losses. The discussion also focused on the role that the retail sector can play and what information should be made available to consumers.
