Find out how the Pact against Hunger is fighting food waste in Brazil

Brazil is one of the largest food producing countries, but part of the population is in a situation of food insecurity. According to the United Nations Organization, 30% of world food production is lost annually. Problems in the transport of products or even in the packages that are stored, make food unfit for consumption.

Thinking about this reality, the Pact against Hunger was created, a movement to extinguish hunger and reduce food waste, which appeared in May of this year. There are several ways to get involved in the project, in addition to the government, actions as individuals and companies can be carried out on the website pactcontrafome.org.

food transport

Food waste is found in all stages that food goes through until it reaches the consumer’s table. The time to reach the distribution centers and how the food is transported has a direct impact on the quality of the fruit, leading to the disposal of those that are not in good condition. Investment in better packaging often generates a cost that the retailer is not willing to pay.

To reduce waste, investment in packaging is essential. The greater protection, standardization and firmness of the food in the package means that the fruits arrive at the final destination with less damage and more whole, ideal for consumption. In addition to non-standard packaging damaging products, they take up more space. The result of a poorly stored product is disposal, generating waste.

Food that is donated because it is no longer for sale undergoes a selection to assess the quality of the product. At the time of screening these foods may not be approved if they show levels of rot, mold or mildew. Foods that do not pass the screening are discarded. Often for the seller it is not worth the investment, but for the total supply chain and for the reduction of waste it makes a difference.
