Can the world achieve all it needs to in order to halve food loss and waste by 2030? Or in a decade’s time will we face an insurmountable mountain of food wasted between farms and people’s plates – and the resulting social, environmental and economic consequences?
This Champions 12.3 event offered a candid look at food loss and waste around the world, from farms to business supply chains to household kitchens -- including shining a light on reasons for hope, even as the pandemic reveals deep problems in the food system. It also laid out an urgent call for bigger and bolder action.
