The foodwaste challenge
The state of the planet no longer allows us to waste food.
The deleterious environmental impacts of foodwastage
One-third of all food produced each year worldwide is wasted (enough to feed 870 million people) and a significant proportion of this is at field and food processing levels. Food loss and waste consumes ¼ of all the water used by agriculture and is responsible for 8% of all global greenhouse gas emissions.
The limits of the centralized management of biowaste
Centralized and mono-product management in a small number of large plants leads to low added value of biowaste, low economic return for food operators and territories, and bad environmental fingerprint. This model is no longer sustainable considering food industry feeding 9 billions people by 2050.
