In June 2018 Public Opinion Research Centre AV ČR, v.v.i., examined the attitudes declared by the Czech public to the basic dimensions of the issue of food wastage. Respondents evaluated the urgency of this problem, estimated amount of food thrown away in the household and what have habits associated with food. They also expressed their reasons that motivate individuals to reduce food waste and who, in their opinion, has the greatest impact on reducing food waste in the Czech republic. We also wonder who has, according to the respondents, the largest ratio in the total amount of food waste. Another part of this block of questions focused on the familiarity of the Czech public with the terms "Used before/by .." and "Best before".
