Sodexo steps up fight against food waste, aims to deploy data-driven program at 3,000 sites within year

World News: . []

The Program prevents on average 50% of food wasted. Using the program, Sodexo teams can rapidly and easily capture food waste data, giving clear insights into what is being wasted in their kitchens and why. With this new understanding, teams can implement targeted operational and behavioral changes to help end avoidable food waste, whether food waste generated in the kitchen or consumer food waste.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, approximately a third of food produced for human consumption is wasted globally. This is one of the biggest scandals of our time considering the 842 million people suffering from hunger around the world. And the environmental front is equally troubling: if food waste was a country today, it would be the third largest carbon emitter after the USA and China. The impact of food and agriculture on biodiversity, as recently highlighted in the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Report, is a further reason we cannot afford to waste food.

Acting on preventing food waste is part of Sodexo’s .
