American Food Giants Pledge To Reduce Food Waste

December 14, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Fifteen of America’s biggest food companies have committed to the U.S. government’s goal of reducing food waste by half over 14 years. The USDA and EPA last September joined countries around the world in setting the goal, which spotlights increased global awareness that humans need to stop wasting food. Among the companies participating as the first “U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions” are Walmart, PepsiCo, Conagra, Kellogg, General Mills, Sodexo, Campbell Soup, Ahold USA, Bon Appetit, and Unilever. According to an analysis by ReFED, businesses could generate $1.9 billion in profit annually by adopting food waste tracking and analytics to prevent food waste, right-sizing portions, and improving inventory and cold chain management.
