Mainstage Session 2 - Stepping Up to the Plate: The Private Sector’s Role in Fighting Food Waste (Presented in partnership with Food Tank)
Food businesses – from growers to manufacturers to retailers and foodservice providers – generate 63% of total food waste each year. Plus, their actions have a strong effect on how much food gets wasted by consumers too. But the private sector is also leading the way in implementing solutions to reduce food waste. Join food business leaders and leading solution providers in a series of spirited discussions about the important role of the private sector in food waste reduction, the power it holds to enact change, and the ways it is living up to that responsibility.
