In the documentary “Taste the Waste” and a vivid discussion during “FOOD WASTE Talk & Walk” on 17 November 2018 at Goethe Institut Bangkok, it became obvious that there is not one simple solution to end food waste, but that all stakeholders along the value chain – from production to retail, hospitality sector and finally consumers - must play their part.

Fingerfood prepared by Chef Daniel Bucher, Senior Executive Sous Chef at Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park in Bangkok, from rescued food surpluses that would normally have been thrown away showed that “food waste” can actually turn into something truly delicious!

Food Loss and Waste is of high concern to consumers in the Asia Pacific region and globally. FAO estimated as up to one third of the food we produce is lost or wasted.

To get this message across to current audiences FAO has a short series of 9 Basis Tips for reducing Food Waste.

In addition FAO also recently partners with the International Food Waste Coalition to produce a series of training materials for use by schools in the region and beyond. These can also be made part of some school curriculum to educate kids of a range of ages from 5 to 14 years up.
