International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste - 29th Sept

Stop Food Loss and Waste! For the People! For the Planet!

Did you know that 14% of food produced for human consumption is lost between the harvest and retail stages and an additional 17% is wasted at the retail and consumption stages?

Additionally, Food Loss Waste (FLW) has a negative footprint on the environment contributing 8 – 10% of global greenhouse gases. There is an urgent need to address FLW in the efforts to achieve food and nutrition security in sustainable food systems.
