30% of the food produced globally is wasted due to poor planning, inefficient supply management, and reduced access to market.
Meanwhile, close to 1 Billion people go to sleep on an empty stomach, every night.
Given this scenario, the Food Loss and Waste (FLW) Protocol, launched in 2013, is working hard to reduce this disparity. This multi-stakeholder partnership developed the FLW Standards which quantify and report on food wastage, or food removed from the food supply chain.
Food Data Platform
With the FLW Standards as our inspiration, the FBMG conceptualized the Food Data Platform.
The aim is to assimilate and reflect real time food data that:
- Helps F&B manufacturers produce as per demand, and hence reduce food wastage
- Generates data transparency across the food supply chain, to deliver the right product, in the right amount, at the right price
