NEXDINE’s Multi-Faceted Approach to Food Waste Management

Food waste is a global problem of staggering proportions. In 2021, the World Wildlife Fund reported that the estimated total food loss and waste is over 2.5 billion tons – nearly 40% of all food produced. Greenhouse gas emissions generated by food that goes unconsumed represent 10% of all emissions. 4.4 million KM2 of land is used to grow this unconsumed food, and water equivalent to 304 million Olympic swimming pools was used to produce it. The price tag placed on food loss and waste is estimated to be $1.5 trillion! And yet, as all of this food is lost or wasted each year, over 800 million people are going hungry.
