Reduce, Recover, Reuse Food Waste

As founding members of the Food Waste Reduction Alliance – Food Marketing Institute, Grocery Manufacturers Association and the National Restaurant Association – launched a series of infographics that capture key findings of a new report, the "2014 Analysis of U.S. Food Waste Among Manufacturers, Retailers and Restaurants," prepared by BSR for the Food Waste Reduction Alliance. The infographics offer a quick view of some of the differences found in the different industry waste streams, which taken together present the bigger picture of our united efforts to reduce, recover and reuse food waste.
