The Food Waste Reduction Alliance (FWRA) released an updated guide with practical steps and examples to help food manufacturers, food retailers and restaurants cut food waste. The second annual Best Practices and Emerging Solutions guide highlights ways companies can begin or expand their food donation or food waste diversion programs. The second volume provides additional insight; revisiting model practices and emerging solutions compiled from more than 30 FWRA member companies and expert partners from the hunger relief and waste management sectors; and featuring new real-life examples and case studies.
The Food Waste Reduction Alliance (FWRA) created a toolkit to help businesses cut down on the estimated 80 billion pounds of food waste that ends up in landfills every year in the U.S. The best practices cover topics including technologies for recycling food, plans for avoiding food waste and strategies for overcoming obstacles such as supply chain issues that get in the way of food donations.
Developed by USDA and EPA, the U.S. Food Waste Challenge recognizes organizations and businesses that demonstrate their commitment to reducing food waste, helping to feed the hungry in their communities, and reducing the environmental impact of wasted food.
As part of EPA's Food Recovery Challenge, organizations pledge to improve their sustainable food management practices and report their results.
