Every meal matters

The stark reality that there are people starving to death while tonnes of surplus food are wasted in the food retail chain urged the European Food and Drink industry to take action.  The United Nations committed to reduce food waste and set a goal to halve current food waste numbers by 2030.

The European Food and Drink industry is in a unique position to tackle this issue. They are able to reach billions of people across the world and to help them improve their behaviour towards food waste. They aim to develop partnerships all along the food chain, since achieving progress in the fight against food waste is everyone’s responsibility.

FoodDrinkEurope, the European Food and Drink industry’s organisation, is taking a leading role in encouraging companies to commit to prevent food waste. In partnership with the European Federation of Food Banks (FEBA) and through their ‘Every Meal Matters’ Initiative, they have produced industry guidelines which provide a simple framework around how to anticipate and prepare for food and drink surpluses.
