Food Industry Alliance publishes toolkit on reducing food waste
The Best Practices and Emerging Technologies Toolkit was produced by the Food Waste Reduction Alliance.
The Food Industry Alliance announced the release of a toolkit to help manufacturers, retailers and restaurants reduce food waste. The Best Practices and Emerging Solutions Toolkit was produced by the Food Waste Reduction Alliance (FWRA) and is aimed at reducing the approximately 80 billion pounds of food deposited in US landfills each year.
“The Food Waste Reduction Alliance has been working to tackle food waste challenges within the food sector since 2011, but we know that there are companies out there that are just starting to look at the issue,” says Gail Tavill, vice president, sustainable development for ConAgra Foods and one of the toolkit authors. “Our goal for the toolkit is to elevate the issue of food waste within the sector and enable more companies to take action by sharing key learnings and model practices gleaned from organizations who are at the leading edge of this issue.”
