We're back with some more live podcasting! Much sooner than we anticipated actually. As a part of this year’s digital edition of the EatArt festival, Love Zero Waste is dedicating an episode of the podcast to dive into solutions helping to end waste throughout food production. Guests on the show are some of the most interesting initiatives out there, aiming to drastically reduce food waste and help save the planet.
From farm to fork, nearly one-third of produce and cooked food is being thrown away. And the culprits are to be found everywhere: among manufacturers and producers, throughout logistics, in stores and restaurants, and among consumers, such as you and I. This fairly recent development amounts to a staggering waste of use of land, water, energy, and calories.
Listen to Ebbe Korsgaard, of Beyond Coffee, Estefania Coral Andrade of Vågen & Anders Burman of Östersund municipality share their insights on food production, logistics, circular loops, and much more!
