The work aims at providing a new methodology to facilitate the process of quantifying the food waste according to European standards all along the agrifood chain combining information that is becoming available at local level. This new methodology generates straightforward and easy-to-interpret results for the decision making process in the framework of the quantification of the food waste at local and supralocal scale and it provides adequate procedures which are easy adaptable to the specific circumstances in each municipality. Moreover, this method could have applications for larger territorial contexts, as the national scale, detecting possible points for improvement of the current official figures at this respect.
