The complex causes of consumer food waste make it difficult for commercial actors and public policy makers to develop successful food-waste reduction campaigns. One of the essential problems is that consumer food waste seems to be the un-planned result of divergent food-related behaviors.

This suggests that there exists a relevant relationship between food-related lifestyle patterns and food waste. Directions for the further development of macromarketing actions and policies targeting different consumer segments are derived.
