Food Loss and Waste Law - Throughout the Value Chain

Sheikh Zayed Centre (FAO Headquarters)

Reducing loss and waste across the food value chain will contribute tremendously to reducing the environmental impacts of agriculture, improving the incomes and livelihoods of chain actors as well as the food security and nutrition of low-income consumers. SDG target 12.3 specifically calls for halving per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels, and reducing food losses along production and supply chains including post-harvest losses by 2030.

 

Effectively tackling food loss and food waste necessitates that countries implement technical and legal measures to improve the efficiency of their food supply and consumption chains. Against this background, and in the framework of the partnership established between FAO and LUISS University - School of Law,  FAO and Luiss University, on the occasion of the Commencement Ceremony of Luiss University, will jointly convene a round-table seminar on Food Loss and Waste Law Across the Value Chain.
