The Food Loss & Waste Protocol is a multi-stakeholder partnership, which has developed the global Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard – also known simply as the FLW Standard.

Launched in 2013, the Food Loss & Waste Protocol’s mission is to ensure wide adoption of the FLW Standard so companies, governments, cities and others are better informed about food loss and waste and motivated to curb this inefficiency.

A Steering Committee of seven expert institutions provides technical input, written content, strategic direction, and quality control.
