We join coalitions like Friends of Champions 12.3 - gathering leaders across government, business and civil society – that are dedicated to accelerating progress toward achieving SDG 12.3: to halve food waste by 2030 worldwide.
We have also joined the 10X20X30 Initiative that brings together 10 of the world’s biggest food retailers and providers to reduce the staggering amount of food that is discarded every year.
When it comes to consumers, they have a role to play in fighting food waste, but they can’t do that alone. That’s why we have joined Too Good To Go to help people cut food waste at home.
We take actions with consumers through education and inspiration, for example on food labels and teaching them when food is safe to eat. We want to help them better understand what date labels mean, and we believe that simplifying food date labels is an effective way to reduce the amount of edible food thrown out by households. Therefore, we support initiatives aiming to improve and harmonize food date labelling and, together with our partner, we implement initiatives at scale, starting with Danone Germany, France and Spain.
