Empowering Consumers: The Latest and Greatest Resources to Reshape Attitude and Behaviors
Breakout Session (Running Concurrently)
A consumer behavioral approach to food waste is critical. Households generate more surplus food than any other sector, and while poor food management is a big cause, a portion of that waste occurs because of decisions made by other actors throughout the supply chain.

Tune it to see the latest and greatest products and initiatives making these shifts.
