International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste

Global Food Talk is a part of the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste 2021. In December 2019, the UN General Assembly announced 29 September as the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste. The day is intended to raise awareness of UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12, which aims to promote responsible consumption and production. The target 12.3 is to “halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses” Read more here
