dc.description.abstractApproximately 30% of food produced globally is wasted each year. There is a significant need to understand the situation surrounding this food waste phenomenon. This research used a variety of mixed method approaches to understand the conversation, perceptions, and behaviours of stakeholder within the food supply chain in relation to food waste. A jurisdictional review and content analyses were conducted to gain insight and understanding of the current conversation occurring. Stakeholder interviews were conducted to understand the current situation within the food supply chain and waste management system. Additional consumer surveys yielded experimental constructs surrounding the purchasing behaviours, waste separating practices, household waste perceptions, and level of environmental concern within respondents. For successful mitigation of terminal food waste within the food supply chain it is necessary for all involved to take a holistic approach and focus on initiatives on each level of the food waste hierarchy.en_US
