Fixing the food chain
major organizations launch projects to eliminate food waste around the world
One-third of the world's food goes to waste. So a major U.S. foundation is sponsoring a project to demonstrate how humanity can cut food waste in half by 2030. In January, The Rockefeller Foundation launched YieldWise, a seven-year, US$130 million project to reduce post-harvest loss — the spoiling of food that could have been eaten— in sub-Saharan Africa. The effort will also look at ways to prevent food waste in the West.
