GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food Waste Reduction Alliance Best Practices & Emerging Solutions Toolkit

Title:
Food Waste Reduction Alliance Best Practices & Emerging Solutions Toolkit

Abstract:
This toolkit was developed to help guide companies through the basic steps in food waste reduction. Included are sections on how to get started, as well as suggestions for how to identify diverse solutions. The Food Waste Reduction Alliance is a three-year initiative focused on reducing food waste, particularly the food that never reaches the consumer. The effort, launched in 2011 by the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the Food Marketing Institute and the National Restaurant Association, aims to increase donations to food banks and decrease the amount of food sent to landfills. The Alliance brings together the manufacturing, retail, and restaurant industries, as well as expert partners from the anti-hunger and waste management sectors to tackle one of our biggest challenges in the United States. More than 30 companies have joined the effort and are actively seeking solutions to this challenge. (PDF Format; Length: 25 pages)
