Objectives & Targets

Objectives & Targets


The overall aim of the TRiFOCAL London project is to pilot an innovative approach to encourage:

  • The prevention of food waste by changing planning, shopping, storage and meal preparation behaviours
  • The promotion of healthy and sustainable eating by changing purchasing and preparation practices
  • The recycling of unavoidable food waste

Over the lifetime of the project we will be aiming to engage with:

  • Londoners, including commuters and visitors
  • Up to 20 community groups, offering 100 workshops and up to 100 training sessions for 2000 individuals
  • 1,000 food service businesses
  • 30 large employers
  • 24 schools in London


The initiative aims to use innovative approaches that will lead to:

  • A 20% reduction in the per capita tonnage of avoidable food waste generated by Londoners, from around 63kg per resident to around 49kg per annum
  • £330m savings in annual living costs for Londoners, or £37 (€48) per resident
  • Reductions in global CO2 equivalent emissions of 430,000 tonnes per annum
  • Global water savings of 70 million cubic metres
  • An increase of 5% in the amount of unavoidable food waste recycled by households across London
  • A 20% increase in the number of Londoners aware of key actions they need to take to eat more healthily and sustainably
  • 5 EU replication cities signed up at the start of the project and at least a further 5 signed up during the project duration
