I have written on Food Waste now and then as it's clearly a part of the food supply system where the world can grow food availability using existing technology.
Now a UNEP/FAO lead campaign, supported by initiatives such as WRAP, has been launched.

Think-Eat-Save and the slogan “Reduce Your Foodprint” seem to indicate that it is focussed on the consumer, but the information on the site is not limited to the household. The initiative seems to be focussing on the complete food chain.
There is already a wealth of information here, presented in a very readable way, and there are indications of actions to promote awareness and action.
Think-Eat-Save rests on four pillars
Awareness raising on the impact of, and solutions for food loss and waste.
Collaboration and coordination of world-wide initiatives on food loss and waste reduction.
Policy, strategy and programme development for food loss and waste reduction.
Support to investment programmes and projects..
