INTRO

Challenges are expanding in the vast alimentary landscape, and so is the attention to problems and possible solutions.

Globally growing population, scarce resources, consequences of climate change, human pressure on the environment, and social inequalities are some issues that surround us. These conditions generate an urgency for solutions that will help ensure we are able to feed the global population safely.

According to the UNEP Food Waste Index 2021 of the European Commission, around 931 million tons of food waste were generated in 2019 – 61% of which came from households, 26% from food service and 13% from retail. Wasting food is an ethical and economic issue that depletes the environment of limited natural resources.
