More than 820 million people in the world continue to go hungry every day. The issue of food loss and waste, be it pre or post-harvest is receiving attention by the World.
The 2030 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG), specifically Target 12.3 calls for reducing per capital global food waste at the retail and consumer levels, and the reduction of food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses. Many countries are already putting efforts to reduce food loss and waste, but significant challenges still remain unsolved.
According to FAO, as we progress towards reducing food loss and waste three dimensions need to be considered. First, we need to know exactly how much food is lost and wasted, as well as where and why. Second, we need to be clear about our underlying reasons or objectives for reducing food loss and waste. Third, we need to understand how food loss and waste, as well as the measures to reduce it and affects the objectives.
