One third of all the food produced for human consumption is wasted every year. These 1.3 billion tons of food would be enough to feed 3 billion people. Food waste has also a huge environmental impact, knowing the carbon, water, chemical, and land footprint of agriculture. From an economic perspective, the BCG estimates that this global food waste issue is worth $1.2 trillion but also represents a $700 billion opportunity yearly.
8 years of practice encapsulated in this workshop designed for food industry leaders, lecturers, and researchers, higher education students, government officials, UN officers, or CSR executives. Participants will be equipped with new skills, in-depth knowledge, and practical methodologies to tackle one of the biggest global challenges of this century: food waste.
