In Europe, the major distributors’ preferences for fruits and vegetables that are perfect in terms of shape, colour and size result in waste of about 30% of what’s produced by farmers. FLAW4LIFE project - Spreading ugLy Fruit Against Food Waste – arises with two main goals: • to fight food waste due to appearance and the unnecessary use of resources used in its production; • to create an alternative market for fruit and vegetables that are discarded due to aesthetic reasons and to create a movement capable of changing consumption patterns. The project is co-funded by European Union’s LIFE Programme and Fruta Feia Co-Op works in partnership with Lisbon City Council and Instituto Superior Técnico - University of Lisbon.
