The Institute of Sustainable Nutrition (ISUN) has been pooling research on sustainable food systems at the Münster University of Applied Sciences since 2009. ISUN takes into account a food product’s entire life cycle, from development, procurement, logistics and processing to marketing, utilisation and disposal. Since then, reducing food waste has become one of the key research fields and ISUN has expanded its competencies in various projects on analysing and reducing food loss along the value chain and also on communication with value chain actors and consumers.

Role in LOWINFOOD: ISUN is leader of WP5 “Innovations against waste of all foods in out-of-home and at-home consumption”. Within this work package, ISUN is leading the tasks 5.1 and 5.2 and participating to task 5.3. ISUN is also expected to contribute to WP2, WP3 and WP4 by leading one task in each of these work packages. ISUN is also involved in WP1, WP6 and WP7 together with all other partners.
