The State of Food and Agriculture 2019

Moving forward on food loss and waste reduction

Today many are aware of the need to reduce food losses and waste.
With a specific goal on halving food waste while reducing losses, the 2030 Agenda is also quite vocal about the issue. But beside being a goal in its own right, reducing food loss and waste could help achieve a number of Sustainable Development Goals relating to food security and environmental sustainability.

How to translate this into effective action?
The State of Food and Agriculture 2019 responds to this question, providing key guidance for an effective and sustainable solution of the problem.

The report provides new estimates of the world’s food that is lost from post-harvest up to, but excluding, the retail level. It also offers a comprehensive analysis of the critical loss points in specific supply chains, providing examples on appropriate measures for an effective reduction.
