Hello BESTers,

Work is under way at the World Resource Institute (WRI) to develop a 
standard protocol for measuring food loss and waste.  The protocol will 
help companies and countries across the globe understand where and how 
food is wasted and to develop strategies for reducing this waste.  WRI 
will be working with the U.N. Environmental Programme, FAO, and WRAP to 
include this protocol in their Think Eat Save campaign.  In the fight 
against food waste, knowing is half the battle, and with a 
well-developed method of measuring food waste, we will know how to 
better tackle this problem.

Have a great weekend,


New global standard will measure and help cut food waste
