It’s time to get serious about food waste in fight against global heating | Dave Lewis | Business

Torri Donley

As a society, we are converting more and more land to food production, with massive consequences for wildlife, water and forests. Yet one third of all food produced is thrown away and food waste is responsible for a staggering 8% of all global greenhouse gas emissions, more than any country in the world bar the US and China. This is an environmental disaster but it is a social and economic one, too, when more than 800 million people are undernourished and food waste costs the global economy $940bn (£737bn) each year.

The effects of climate change are already being felt, in droughts, fires and extreme temperatures. But while climate is high on the agenda, the role food waste plays is not. Not enough companies are making financial disclosures related to climate or food waste. And not a single country mentions food waste in its nationally determined contribution (NDC) to

Even during the good days, the role of a food and beverage worker is akin to a firefighter – we put on a daily show, and constantly anticipate a little metaphorical fire around every corner as each service is treated like opening night, and yet, unlike Broadway, our cast of characters changes. The set is in constant motion and, of course, there are sometimes

The pandemic won’t hinder meal prep for this Oakland youth catering business

Torri Donley

At the posterior side of the Filoli gardens, vast oak trees frame a former tennis court at the historic grounds. The foliage creates a canopy that cools guests while they enjoy lunch prepared by Oakland’s catering business, The Town Kitchen.

Regulatory News:

Elior France (Paris:ELIOR):

Today, at an extraordinary meeting of its Works Council, Elior France announced its intention to launch a job protection plan in its Business & Industry contract catering activity.

While the health and economic crisis caused by Covid-19 has had major impacts on the Education and Healthcare markets, these impacts directly reflect the current situation, whereas in the Business
