Norway Aims to Reduce Food Waste by 50%

July, 2017 – The Norwegian Government and the food industry have signed an agreement to reduce food waste in Norway by 50 percent by 2030. The parties agree to support the United Nations (UN) sustainable development target to halve food waste at the retail and consumer level, and reduce food losses along production and supply chains by 2030.

A third of all food produced globally is destroyed or thrown away. In Norway, the average consumer throws away 42 kg of food annually that could have been eaten. Food waste in the food supply chain equals 68 kg per person per year.
