At an award ceremony in Denver, Colorado, in April, the Foodservice Consultants Society International recognized our CEO Andrew Shakman with its Green Award. It is the first time the award has been given since 2012 and recognizes Andrew's and LeanPath’s impact on food waste prevention: 20 million pounds of food waste prevented globally since 2014 alone.
Paris-based VivaTech caught up with LeanPath and Sodexo for a VivaStory video. Sodexo is a signatory to UN Sustainable Development Target 12.3, which sets a target of 50% reduction in food waste per capita by 2030. Over 8 years of partnership, LeanPath and Sodexo have developed the highly customized WasteWatch powered by LeanPath food waste prevention platform to help it reach its food waste prevention goals.
The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) recently released a comprehensive report on the state of food loss and waste in Canada, Mexico and the United States developed through the CEC’s North American Initiative on Food Waste Reduction and Recovery. Characterization and Management of Food Loss and Waste in North America documents adverse socio-economic and environmental impacts of food loss and waste, and actions that the industrial, commercial, institutional, government and nongovernmental sectors can implement to mitigate these impacts.
LeanPath CEO Andrew Shakman is proud to be a supporting author to the report.
