USDA is working to cut food waste in half by 2030

The USDA is preparing for its second annual Food Loss and Waste Innovation Fair, and they are estimating a third of all food produced in the U.S. goes to waste, which causes methane emissions in landfills.

The Agency has an ambitious goal to cut food waste in half by 2030, saying the average household could save nearly $400 per person every year by taking simple steps to avoid throwing out good food.

“Innovation at all stages of the supply chain is really key to achieving meaningful reductions in food loss and waste, and the USDA is really invested in and understands the importance of this innovation,” said USDA Food Loss and Waste Liaison Jean Buzby.
