Globally, a third of all food is lost or wasted
between the farm and the fork.
Reducing food loss and waste can be a triple win: It can save money for farmers, companies, and households; wasting less can feed more people; and reductions can alleviate pressure on climate, water, and land resources. But it is not only about waste, also current processes for food production need to be modernized and innovated, thus reducing energy and water consumption. The circular economy is envisaged to reduce the pressure on natural resources.
