International food waste

Across Indonesia, South Africa and Mexico

We have launched FLAWLESS (Halving Food Loss And Waste by Leveraging Economic Systems), a new project in Indonesia, South Africa and Mexico to halve food loss and waste by leveraging economic systems.

This global coalition of partners will accelerate action on food loss and waste by firstly mobilising the financial sector to factor in both financial and environmental performance in their lending.

Examples could be investments that enable the food sector to acquire smart technology to help reduce food waste by repaying the up-front cost through the cost savings instead.

The project was successfully launched online as part of the official launch of the South African food waste voluntary agreement to mark International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste.
