Avoiding food waste is one of the strategies that the World Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has been trying to promote around the world to avoid some global social and environmental problems, such as hunger and climate change.
On September 29, during the celebration of International Food Loss and Waste Awareness Day, FAO has sent some important messages, which, according to Jean Buzby, representative of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), they are:
– Take advantage of the current crisis to rethink the way we produce, manage and waste our food.
– Reducing food and waste losses requires us to strengthen food systems.
– Innovation, technologies and infrastructure are essential to improve the efficiency of food systems and reduce food losses and waste.
Crises offer us opportunities for change. “Together, the food waste of individual stocks, food companies and governments can make a difference,” he said. According to Buzby, the USDA aims to cut food waste in half by 2030.
FUNIBER promotes studies in the area of Nutrition, such as the International Master in Nutrition and Dietetics, aimed at professionals who carry out their activity in positions related to health, industry or companies that want to specialize in the area of food.
