Food Consumption Impact Datasets
The Food Consumption Impact Datasets include food products at consumer level - either at the consumer's home or at the retailer. Products include consumer foods ranging from for example mustard, apples, prepared mixed salad and ready to eat soups, to sunflower oil, yoghurt and meat burgers.
The Food Consumption Impact Datasets can be used to assess the environmental impacts of consumer foods, while being able to rely on a consistent, qualitatively sound set of data.
The Food Consumption Impact Datasets: Farm to Fork & Farm to Retail
The datasets are available with the following system boundaries:
- The Farm to Fork dataset, containing environmental impact data on 173 (EU) or 213 (NL) products at consumption stage.
