To put that into a context; one million meals could feed one thousand people for a whole year. With one third of all food harvested or produced around the world being lost or thrown away everyday, IKEA wants to inspire and enable people to think differently about food waste and to incorporate sustainability into their everyday life.
“As we set out with high ambitions and the goal of decreasing food waste by 50% at IKEA, we are
happy to share that the initial results are very promising. All stores that have implemented the solution show a significant decrease in food waste after only a few months. That is a great motivation for us to continue the roll out of the initiative, working together with IKEA co-workers all around the world.” says Michael La Cour Managing Director at IKEA Food Services AB.
