On 29 September 2022, the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste will be observed for the third time.

Reducing food loss and waste is of significant importance as it contributes to the realization of broader improvements to agri-food systems toward achieving food security, food safety, improving food quality and delivering on nutritional outcomes. Reducing food loss and waste also contributes significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, as well as pressure on land and water resources.

You are kindly invited to join the global virtual event in observance of this year International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste. Stay tuned for further details!

"Getting involved guide" will be soon available, together with other relevant material, to be used for country level and local initiatives. Please visit the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste website for keeping yourself updated!
