Every year over 260,000 tons of food waste are generated in Catalunya, 16% of which comes from the restaurant sector. Part of this food surplus can be addressed through prevention and reuse projects, such as Pont Alimentari, but there is an important part that is not being addressed. This is the surplus generated by the restaurants’ diners, which is all the food that -once served at the table- has not been consumed and which, unfortunately, ends up in the garbage.

Remenja’mmm (Re-eat me) aims to make the food waste problem visible and to raise awareness amongst consumers and the restaurant and hospitality industries towards its prevention -as well as its associated environmental and socio-economic benefits. Likewise, proposals are made to reduce food waste and containers are offered to recover the surplus generated by diners at restaurant tables. In this way, the campaign intends to influence consumer habits, normalizing attitudes such as taking unconsumed food and drink from restaurants.

Remenja’mm also aims to contribute to achieving the objectives of reducing food waste and waste prevention established by European, Spanish and Catalan legislation, as well as involving public administrations in the campaign and bringing together the other actors involved in food waste such as non-profit entities and industry.
