Cutting food waste high on the global agenda

Food – once harvested, picked and packed for delivery – undergoes many processes before reaching our dinner tables. As such, some food products become inedible even before reaching the consumers.

A possible food crisis was one of the major concerns raised at the World Economic Forum, as access to nutrition has become either unreliable or inadequate. One solution lies in reducing food waste through better managing how food travels. The world produces 4 billion metric tons of food, but an estimated 1.2 to 2 billion tons is thrown out.

It is equally crucial to alter the transport infrastructure and storage facilities to effectively reduce wastage.

Expect food logistics to be a key transforming and transformative industry in emerging markets in the 21st century.

Can the food chain be optimized to cut food wastage?
