ABOUT ONE\THIRD

ONE\THIRD is a think tank that gather minds and interest groups representing the entire food chain from ‘farm to fork’, public authorities and the research community to help combat and prevent food waste and food loss.

 

 

Together we aim to create tangible impact for Danish society, while working with our global partners to effect real change in food waste and loss internationally, aligning specifically with the UN Sustainable Goal 12.3 to, by 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses.

ONE\THIRD OF ALL FOOD IS LOST OR WASTED

One third of all food produced globally is lost or wasted in the process from production to consumption. Food waste is an environmental, economic and ethical issue. Every year, food waste is responsible for an estimated 8% of greenhouse gases, costs $940b and while we are producing twice the amount of food needed to feed the planet’s inhabitants, too many of the world’s population are starving.

The time for action is now!
