What is it about?

The developed world has to face up a lot of socio - ecological issues, such as household food waste. We show for the first time that HFW is attributed to the problematic and/ or incomplete socio - ecological consciousness (SEC). Local bodies and other policymakers could implement food- related actions, focusing on the problematic parts of SEC; perceptual abilities, eating habits, consumer attitudes, behaviours etc, in order to prevent the HFW.

Why is it important?

There are limited data on household food waste in Mediterranean countries as well as for the case of Greece.


Writing this article was a great pleasure as it has co-authors with whom I have had long standing collaborations. This article also enrich the global bibliography to food waste related topics providing at the same time data, to individuals from different countries around the world- members of different households, on how they have to manage their food in a sustainable way.
