Whether it’s tossing imperfect, “unsellable,” or unused ingredients, annual food waste is a considerable concern across North America.

Shifting toward Sustainability
Experts believe reducing food waste is a viable solution to fighting climate change. Pursuing a more sustainable food system must begin from the top-down, but there’s evidence that consumers are on the brink of getting on board.
What Types of Foods are Being Upcycled?
Many commonly wasted products (and by-products) have significant second-life potential. It’s time for consumers and brands to put those products to work.
Making the Most of Scraps — Using Phone Apps
Companies are integrating technology to keep them honest in the fight against food waste. Some are partnering with Too Good to Go, an app that helps connect consumers to restaurants and stores with unsold food. HowGood is another company that tracks the degree of how “green” companies are in their food production. Such data can be used to assess how they’re performing against sustainability goals. Consumers can use the app to check the sustainability of products they’re looking to purchase.
