August 20, 2019 EcoVadis FR


Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has released a new report available online aimed at tackling food waste in Canada, Taking Stock: Reducing Food Loss and Waste. The foreword of the report shares that recent research estimates that 20%, or 11 million tonnes, of all food produced in Canada annually becomes avoidable food loss or waste. In 2015, Canada committed to the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a target to “halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses.”
