Type of document: Communication / Awareness Raising
With the world population rising to 7.5 billion inhabitants, the scarcity of resources makes the reduction of food waste and its collection to develop food donations an absolute priority to fight hunger and poverty.
Today one third of the food produced worldwide every year is thrown away while one fourth of it would be enough to feed the world population.
The hospitality industry, although a small waster, has developed practical guidelines to help hospitality businesses to reduce their food waste and to engage in food donations.
