ABOUT US

 
 

Taste Before You Waste is a foundation, based in Amsterdam, with the mission to reduce consumer food waste by providing citizens with the inspiration, knowledge and opportunity for responsible and waste-free consumption. We create a welcoming international community of foodies by hosting donation-based events such as Food-cycle Markets, Wasteless Dinners, Educational Workshops, Event Caterings and presentations, showcasing that the food that is currently regarded as waste is actually delicious and valuable. By raising awareness and empowering citizens, Taste Before You Waste contributes to a social movement that pushes for a fairer and more sustainable food system.

What a Waste!

 
 
 

The global food system is the largest consumer of natural resources and emitter of greenhouse gases.

Despite using 34% of the land, consuming 69% of the water, and being the main cause of deforestation and loss of habitat, a third of all the food produced is not consumed. Food is discarded according to it’s market value rather than it’s nutritional value and reflects the inequalities and wastefulness of our capitalist economy. Recovering it, lovingly preparing it and enjoying a shared meal, is an act of resistance and resilience to that system.
