Hello Matyas,
Please note that food packaging is not part of EEA's working remit. However, here are two links to EEA Signals Reports that may be useful for you:[…]/from-production-to-waste-food-system[…]/food-waste
In addition, the SOER-2015 briefing section dealing with waste could be of interest to you:
Also, perhaps the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) could be a relevant source for you to contact for more relevant infos:

Best regards
