Abstract

Given estimates of food waste often involve applying fixed factors or shares across different stages of food supply chain, missing the factors affecting food waste. We propose a first step in this direction by using an alternative way to impute consumer Food Waste and a first attempt at showing how it might be linked to consumer spending. In the process we derive implications for consumption elasticity and policy.
