Reducing Food Waste by Changing the Way Consumers Interact with Food

2

With 62.5 million tons of food wasted in the United States each year, there is much work to be done to bring about substantial changes in the food industry that will create a more efficient food system and help preserve the environment. This guide describes promising opportunities to reduce food waste in three areas—packaging, food retail, and home kitchens—and discusses a number of solutions that could be piloted, validated, and scaled to significantly reduce food waste in America. It is intended for food industry leaders and disruptors, advocates for food waste reduction, designers, and funders who seek direction on ideas they can consider for implementation over the next five to 10 years. The solutions presented are intended to serve as a springboard for action and collaboration within and beyond the food industry to drive the field forward.
