Food waste prevention and reduction is considered one of the main challenges of our time. According to the UN Environment Programme, in 2019 about 931 million tonnes of food waste was generated, 61 per cent of which came from households, 26 per cent from food service and 13 per cent from retail (UNEP, 2021). In this scenario, food sharing and redistribution business models aiming at the re-use of surplus food for human consumption may represent an impactful tool to address this issue.

Abstract

Food waste prevention and reduction is considered one of the main challenges of our time. According to the UN Environment Programme, in 2019 about 931 million tonnes of food waste was generated, 61 per cent of which came from households, 26 per cent from food service and 13 per cent from retail (UNEP, 2021). In this scenario, food sharing and redistribution business models aiming at the re-use of surplus food for human consumption may represent an impactful tool to address this issue.
