This page highlights case studies, videos, tools, and other resources from our partners to help organizations reduce food waste in their supply chain. Preventing food loss at the source reduces costs by saving ingredients, packaging, labor and waste removal. It also prevents the waste of the water, energy and other resources that went into producing the food.
For those needing more tailored support, Sustainable Food Trade Association is available to help!
