How These Startups Are Waging a War on Food Waste

The Boss Magazine
"Food and drink related waste in the U.S. has been a pressing issue for some time now. In 2012, it was reported that $165 billion in food was being wasted in the U.S. annually: that’s 40 percent of all food being either left to rot or tossed out. In 2015, the cost of food waste was up to $218 billion, with 27 metric tons of that being attributed to U.S. homes alone."
Read more about innovative startups that are bringing new concepts to reduce food waste in the Boss Magazine article and stay tuned for more information regarding the 2019 Evolution of Food Waste Product Development Competition to be held at the RCA Conference.
