Tackling food losses and waste in an efficient, sustainable and integrated way should be considered an opportunity to feed people and optimize the use of natural and financial resources at the same time. The private sector, including the food industry, can play an important and unique role in food loss and waste reduction by optimizing food processing procedures, streamlining supply chains and linking farmers to market, among other things. Reducing the loss and waste of nuts and fruits is especially significant given their nutritional value and great potential for value addition.
