Food Waste Reduction Business Plan

I. Executive Summary

1.1 Introduction

Food security for growing populations is an increasing concern as around one-third, or 1.3 billion metric tons, of food is lost or wasted along the food value chain, which results in not only the loss of calories and nutrition available for human consumption but also valuable inputs required for its production and distribution.

Food that goes uneaten wastes money, energy, water, land, and other resources in addition to the food itself. The world can no longer afford the liability of food waste. Amid all the complexities in today’s business world, reducing food waste is low-hanging fruit in comparison with all potential responses to climate change because it doesn’t require government interventions to make a significant change. Instead, big data, machine learning, and other technologies can be used to create more efficient supply chains and marketing strategies. While people may never be able to eliminate food waste, but can play an active part in bringing about a change that significantly reduces the greenhouse gases, water wastage, and the other environmental damage it causes by using data analytics for effective food waste management.
