Unlocking the full economic & environmental benefits of waste reduction and resource efficiency in the food & drink supply chain requires a rapid transition to a more sustainable food system. More efficient production and wasting less will help, but we should also consider the sustainability of the food we eat, sell & serve.

Pulses, grains & vegetables require fewer resources and generate less greenhouse gas emissions than other food types, and are therefore cornerstones of Sustainable Eating.
