Food industry leaders commit to tackle food waste in Canada
Source Food in Canada
Canada's National Zero Waste Council and Provision Coalition applaud the formal commitment made today by eight leading Canadian companies - Kraft Heinz Canada, Loblaw Companies Ltd, Maple Leaf Foods, Metro Inc, Save-On-Foods, Sobeys Inc, Unilever Canada and Walmart Canada - to take measurable action to prevent and reduce food waste in their own operations by 50 per cent by 2025.
The companies will measure individual progress using the globally
recognized Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard and
will each report on their progress annually. This measuring and
monitoring action is critical to reducing food waste successfully.
companies recognize that their commitment is in alignment with the
National Zero Waste Council's A Food Loss and Waste Strategy for Canada, and that theirs is a first step on a journey of long term action to address a national problem.
