The Best Food & Waste News, At Your Disposal

Hi there!

Spring is quickly coming to an end, and it won’t be long until beaches and BBQs are water cooler topics-of-choice. Our team had a busy month, attending the Supply Chain Conference in San Diego, presenting at WasteExpo 2017 in New Orleans, and exhibiting at Sustainable Brands 2017 in Detroit. Across the industry, we heard a lot about the role data and technology will play in facilitating food recovery, as well as the need for strengthened supply chain partnerships to drive end-to-end efficiency. We provide our thoughts on the matter in a piece below.

In addition, our newest blog post provides an overview of the Food Loss and Waste Standard, a global accounting and reporting standard geared towards helping businesses and municipalities to quantity food loss and waste and prioritize reduction and recovery efforts.

Thanks for your support!
