Through talks, a documentary screening and invigorating panel discussions featuring Corporates and Social Entrepreneurs, this will be the 4th event of a pressing series on 'Circular Economy & Waste Management' in Asia focusing on FOOD WASTE.
ABOUT THE ISSUE:
Globally, about 1/3 of the total amount of food produced in the world never reaches our plates - that's equivalent to $1 trillion dollars! Meanwhile, just a quarter of this is enough to feed 780 million hungry people.
Worst still, if food waste were a country, it would be the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases, with an economic cost of up to US$680 billion.
This session aims to shed light on the current food waste situation, especially in Asia and throughout the food value chain, to look at innovative business solutions, to both reduce food waste & to ensure that unavoidable food waste goes to something useful - i.e. compost to grow our next harvest of nutritious food.
We look forward to stimulating discussions on how to reduce food waste and to turn it into an opportunity for business!
