Hello BESTers,

Canada's National Zero Waste Council recently released a comprehensive strategy to tackle food waste on a national scale.  "A Food Loss and Waste Strategy for Canada" encourages systematic and consumer behavior changes that can lead to reducing food waste and its impact.  Among the top recommendations are calling for a national 50% food waste reduction goal by 2030, clarifying date labeling, and promoting innovative technology that prevent food loss.  While much of food waste relies on individual choices and behaviors, these nationwide strategies and goals can help set the stage for sweeping wins in the fight against food waste.

Have a great weekend,
