The world's population combined with its shrinking pool of natural resources threaten its ability to provide a resilient food supply - this unprecedented challenge is made even more complex by vast inefficiencies and resulting waste across the food supply chain.
Babbitt presents an overview of the growing food waste challenge and the current research seeking sustainable solutions. Innovative technologies, business models, new policy, and consumer engagement are all required to reduce the amount and environmental impacts of food waste while at the same time creating economic growth and maximizing efficient use of resources.
