Ardo’s actions to reduce Food Waste historically focused on the company’s own activities and those of our upstream growers/suppliers. Since 2015, Ardo has teamed up with like-minded organisations to fight Food Waste in the Catering/FoodService sector.
Ardo and five other organisations, mostly food businesses, plus the World Wildlife Fund, created the International Food Waste Coalition (IFWC). The seven organisations joined forces and expertise, to fight against food waste in the FoodService sector across Europe. The IFWC’s ultimate goal is to inspire other companies and organisations to adopt comprehensive food waste reduction programmes and to re-educate consumers about the value of food. The coalition’s first initiative is to pilot school projects in a number of European countries, identifying where food waste is occurring, finding efficient solutions, and raising awareness amongst students and teachers.
