Food Loss and Waste - Solutions of tomorrow by Denmark

World Food Summit 2018 - Better Food for More People

Reducing food loss and waste can make a sizeable contribution to global food security and lead to more efficiency, more economic productivity and reductions in the emission of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.

It is estimated that 800 million people lack sufficient food on a daily basis and approximately onethird of all food produced for human consumption gets lost or wasted on a global scale, a figure which amounts to 1.3 billion tonnes wasted annually. Food is wasted throughout the entire supply chain, from initial agricultural production down to final household consumption. Read more about this session
