Introduction to Food Loss and Waste

Online seminar
Food Systems for Nutrition Innovation Lab (FSN-IL)

The Food Systems for Nutrition Innovation Lab (FSN-IL) is a consortium led by Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, funded under USAID through the Feed the Future Initiative. In the target geographies of Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, the Lab’s goal is to identify and promote uptake of novel technologies, practices or information flows that help in i) reducing food loss and waste, ii) improve food safety, and iii) enhance access to nutrient-dense (often perishable) foods.

This is the second of three webinars conducted in collaboration with Thriving Solutions. In this webinar, speakers will discuss food loss and waste basics while touching upon different drivers and causes that lead to food loss and waste along the value chain. They will also introduce global targets and related international measurement methodologies that address this issue. They will look at different valorization methods that relate to the FLW hierarchy and give examples of these valorization options. Finally, They will hear from an expert speaker that has developed an AI system to address and reduce food loss and waste.
