Reducing Food Waste in Grocery Retail

WWF is partnering with grocery retailers and food businesses across the supply chain to make transformational commitments to implement food waste reduction across their supply chains; publish annual findings on generation and diversion; and explore new innovations and delivery options that reduce overstocking in stores and help customers avoid food waste in the home. WWF is currently working with businesses and governments in the Pacific Coast Food Waste Commitment—a regional public/private partnership focused on halving food waste on the west coast of North America by 2030.

All of WWF's Food Loss and Waste projects are viewed through the lens of addressing larger systemic food inequities experienced by communities that face barriers—such as immigrants, people of color, and Indigenous peoples. Our aim is to ensure that our projects maximize food use, advance circular systems, contribute to little to no land conversion, and engage in diversity, equity, and inclusion-positive practices. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with diverse actors on this work, and if you are interested in getting in touch, please visit our Partnership Opportunities page or email [email protected].
