Reduce, Recycle, Reuse and Render: Dealing With Food Loss

David Green, director, The U.S. Sustainability Alliance (pictured), examines how suppliers Stateside are thinking differently about how to deal with the growing issue of food loss in the supply chain.

If food waste were a country it would be the third biggest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and the United States, while food produced on nearly one-third of the world’s farmland goes uneaten. This is the stark reality of food loss and waste.

Reports highlighting the facts of food loss and waste, such as the above, from the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) show that approximately one-third of food produced across the world – 1.3 billion tonnes – is lost or wasted at a cost of €600 billion ($680 billion) in industrialised countries and €270 billion ($310 billion) in developing countries.
