Abstract [en]

This study examines the institutional conditions that are afforded to horticultural producers, in the UK, to perform food waste management. This study identifies three important topics of focus regarding food waste management, and performs a thorough literature review in order to critically examine the influence of cosmetic standards, the waste management hierarchy, and historical motivations among citizens. Semi-structured interviewing as well as field observations collaborate with the literature review in representing the stakeholder perspective and experiences of the local horticultural producer. This study suggests conditions for horticultural food waste management are sufficient if stakeholders are willing to collaborate consistently, and if stakeholders voluntarily seek knowledge and competence in order to practise and perform waste management. This voluntary approach and top down encouragement produces conditions for food waste management which could lead to the reduction of food waste in its most unattractive form.
