Good bloggers today reach many thousands of people with their contributions. This shows the huge potential concerning awareness creation among consumers.

From dog blogs to food blogs to blogs on furniture and fashion – but what is out there about food waste?


STREFOWA proudly presents the #reducefoodwaste blogger award 2017

Food waste is one of the big challenges of our time – and the main concern of STREFOWA. STREFOWA is looking at strategies to reduce food waste and how to prevent it in all levels in Central Europe by testing strategies, finding strategies and promoting successful strategies across borders. Bloggers with their ability to reach especially young people play an important role to raise awareness for food waste and to show how to prevent food waste.


We invite all bloggers in Central Europe to submit their best article on food waste prevention – already long time published or still in their head and ready to publish within the submission time.

All submitted articles will be presented online and will take part in the jury- and online voting in November 2017.
