Zero Food Waste
Food waste is food removed from the food supply chain.
It happens all over the life cycle, from the production to the consumption, through storage, transformation and distribution.
A societal issue
According to the FAO, 1/3 of food produced is wasted.
This is 1.3 billion tons per year, enough to feed 3 billion people.
However, in the world, 800 million people still do not have enough food.
If food waste was a country, it would be the 3rd biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, just after the USA and China.
In Europe, food waste represents an annual cost of 143 billion euros.
Avoiding food waste could enable to save up to 200 euros per person.
In line with UN Sustainable Development Goals
SDG - objective 12.3
By 2030, halve per capita food waste at the retail and consumer level, and reduce food losses along production and supply chains
