International Food Waste Day on September 29

In 2019, a new international day was adopted to draw attention to the consequences of food waste and possible solutions, and in 2020 the first international food waste day was held.

On September 29 every year, the UN has, therefore, focused on the issue of reducing food waste, taking an initiative for International Food Waste Day worldwide. This year also coincides with the UN designating 2021 as the International Year of Fruit and Vegetables.

Fruit and vegetables are some of the most common foods that are thrown away unnecessarily. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the aim of this is to:

  • Raise awareness of, and direct political attention to, the nutritional and health benefits of fruit and vegetable consumption.

  • Promote a varied, balanced, and healthy diet and lifestyle through the consumption of fruit and vegetables.

  • Reducing losses and waste of fruit and vegetables in food systems.

  • Share best practices on marketing and consumption, improved sustainability, supply chains, and capacity building

We at Generation Waste would like to draw attention to this day together with our customers and have therefore produced a poster to make it visible to diners that we are actively working on these issues.
