The Consumer Goods Forum organized a group led by CEOs at 14 of the biggest retailers and manufacturers to tackle food waste, according to a release. The goal of the Coalition of Action on Food Waste is to cut in half global food loss per capita by 2025.
The initial members include CPGs such as General Mills, Kellogg Company, Barilla, McCain Foods and Nestlé. Retailers joining the group include Ahold Delhaize, Tesco and Walmart.
The coalition’s members are making three major commitments by joining. The members will need to report their food loss data by 2021, expand the collaboration beyond the coalition by engaging with their suppliers and address food waste at the post-harvest stage where 30% of it is created.
