Food waste management

The statistics on food waste are surprising – a major amount of food is wasted every day across North America and the world.  Food is always a resource – sometimes able to be rediverted for another food use elsewhere or it can always be turned into soil, nutrients of fuel.

  • Minimize waste of edible food by diverting unused food to other uses or markets;
  • Divert food-related waste from the landfill for composting, nutrient salvage or biofuel.

Below are some resources on food waste.
