SAVE FOOD: Global Initiative on Food Loss and Waste Reduction

SAVE FOOD Congress 2017

4 - 10 May 2017
Düsseldorf, Germany

Because innovative packaging concepts create solutions in the value chain.

One third of all food is either wasted or lost – an amount that would be enough to meet global food needs. Together with our members from industry, politics and civil society, SAVE FOOD aims to drive innovations, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and spark off debates in order to generate solutions, across the entire value chain “from field to fork”. By involving all actors.

We call for smart and sustainable production and packaging concepts to improve the supply of food to a growing global population.

We urgently advocate more sustainability, new methods for efficient crop cultivation and harvesting, and fighting losses through conservation of resources.

We see potentials for optimizing assortments, the supply chain, logistics and waste recycling in order to combat food losses.
