Thailand’s First Food Waste Changemaking Event, Zero Summit 2021 By SOS Food Rescue Foundation
BANGKOK, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Each year we lose 931 million tons of food produced for human consumption while more than 1 billion people still do not have access to adequate food.
In Thailand, according to the Pollution Control Department, 64% of municipal waste is food waste which equals to 17.5 million tons per year! Some of those food wastes are invisible food, produced but never reach the consumer.
There are still more businesses that are not addressing their food waste. There are more people now under the poverty line (9.9%) and 6.5M people in the country are undernourished, and there is no law protecting businesses from donating their surplus food to people.
It’s time to rally all the food industry leaders to help us fight this battle and achieve ZERO Food Waste and ZERO Hunger in Thailand.
ZERO Summit 2021 is the virtual summit, the first-ever food-driven sustainability event organized by Scholars of Sustenance, the first food rescue foundation in Thailand sponsored by The Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) as the ‘Sustainable Event Partner’.
