GLRPPR Sector Resource: Characterization and Management of Food Loss and Waste in North America: Foundational Report

Title:
Characterization and Management of Food Loss and Waste in North America: Foundational Report

Abstract:
As concern mounts regarding the issue of food loss and waste in North America, the CEC recognized the need for foundational research into food loss and waste volumes, sources, and environmental and socio-economic impacts. In response to that need, the CEC worked in collaboration with key stakeholders to develop Characterization and Management of Food Loss and Waste in North America -- a comprehensive examination of the state of food loss and waste in Canada, Mexico and the United States. With an emphasis on source reduction of food loss and waste and the recovery of surplus food, the report chronicles some of the key approaches that are being used to mitigate food loss and waste in North America and beyond. The report will inform country-level strategies and supports international and domestic commitments of interest to the three countries. For members of the food industry involved in processing, distribution, retail, or food service sectors, this report presents an opportunity to learn from the experiences and best practices in the quest to minimize food loss and waste.
