Keeping Coke Relevant In Nepal

May 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Coca-Cola’s country director for Nepal Ambuj Deo Singh says Coke has remained pretty much the same during its 132-year history but has also managed to be relevant in his country, and in many others. Relevance, he notes, comes from talking to consumers about their needs “in the language that they want us to speak.” An example is the recent ad campaign (“Coke Kham Russia Jam”), which “relates to everyone here in Nepal” because it is associated with momo (a type of dumpling). Coca-Cola is also associated with the festival of Dashain, celebrating human relationships. Singh says the company is planning to introduce new products, such as juices, in the near future. Plans also include making Kinley available nationwide and expanding the distribution base.

USDA Issues Proposed GMO Food Labeling Rules For Public Comment

May 4, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

The USDA has issued proposed rules on the labeling of foods that contain “bioengineered” ingredients, a more neutral term than “genetically modified organisms” (GMO). The rules implement a federal law enacted in 2016 (National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Standard, PL 114-216) that was a victory for backers of federal mandatory labeling, but also for opponents because it did not require all food companies to put readable information on packages. The law also barred states from writing their own mandatory labeling laws. The proposed rules allow small food manufacturers to inform consumers via websites or telephone numbers. Larger companies can use a label on packages, a symbol to be developed by USDA or bar codes, or other digital means scannable with smartphones. Public comment on the proposal is open until July 3; the final rules will be issued July 29. (© Wikimedia)

Coca-Cola PH Donates Used Bottle Caps To Water Accessibility Initiative

May 3, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Coca-Cola Philippines has started recycling used plastic bottle caps to make rubber gaskets for water ram pumps. The firm's bottling partner, Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines, has already delivered over 65 kilograms of high-density polyethylene and 625 kilograms of polypropylene caps to Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation, which was developing a cost-efficient and easily-maintained ram pump model. The scrap bottle caps will be used to manufacture ramp pump spare parts. This is part of Coca-Cola's Agos Program, a water accessibility initiative that makes use of hydraulic ram pumps and gravity to supply water to upland communities without the need for electricity or fossil fuel.

April 26, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

Over 40 firms, responsible for over 80% of plastic packaging on products sold in the United Kingdom, have joined the government and several trade organizations in establishing the UK Plastics Pact, led by sustainability group WRAP. The agreement lays out a set of pledges undertaken by firms to reduce plastic pollution over the next seven years. It promises to eliminate single-use plastic packaging, including 2025 goals to make 100% of packaging recyclable or compostable, to recycle or compost 70%, and to use 30% recycled material in plastic packaging. The pact signatories include Coca-Cola, Asda, Procter & Gamble, and Marks & Spencer.

“Smart Packaging” Helps Extend Food Shelf Life, Reduces Waste

April 19, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A New Zealand university scientist who specializes in “smart packaging” says there are a number of viable solutions that can cut food waste. Each type of packaging acts differently depending on the food being protected. According to Dr. Jenneke Heising, “active packaging” extends shelf life by reducing negative factors, such as oxygen, that react with the food. Active packaging can also react to ethylene gas, slowing the ripening process of produce, and can also regulate the level of moisture, other gases, and temperature. Still another type of packaging uses antimicrobial materials to curb bacterial growth on fresh produce, reducing the need for preservatives.  [ Image credit: © Rabobank New Zealand  ]

Food Waste In The U.S. Exacts A Huge Environmental Toll

April 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A new study by university and USDA researchers has found that about 25 percent of all food available to eat in the U.S. – one pound per person, or about 30 percent of available calories – is wasted each day. The environmental costs of such food waste are huge. About 30 million acres of cropland, 4.2 trillion gallons of water, and nearly two billion pounds of fertilizer are used to produce the wasted food. The most wasted foods – fruits and vegetables – are actually the healthiest: produce waste amounts to 39 percent of the food wasted by each person, according to the study published in the journal PLOS ONE.  [ Image credit: © Wikepedia  ]

Retail Grocers Are Major Culprits In America’s Food Waste Problem

April 17, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Supermarket chains in the U.S. are contributing significantly to the nation’s food waste problems, according to a new report. Nine of the ten largest grocery retailers – Ahold Delhaize is the exception – do not publicly report their total volume of food waste. The study, conducted by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Ugly Fruit and Veg Campaign, listed five companies – Target, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, Costco, and Publix – who earned a “D” grade for efforts to reduce waste. Aldi flunked the evaluation, while Walmart earned a “B.” Food retailers generate 40 percent of the food waste in the U.S., more than restaurants or foodservice providers, the study noted. A CBD spokesperson said food waste squanders farmland and water and puts food security at risk. “We can stop this massive waste, but only if supermarkets are part of the solution," Jennifer Molidor.  [ Image credit: ©  Wikepedia  ]

Banana Cleaners Make Peels Edible, Keep Them Out Of Landfills

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A California-based company looking to reduce food waste has launched the “Save the Peels” campaign with a goal of redirecting 18 million pounds of banana peel waste from landfills. More than 3.2 billion pounds of bananas are eaten every year in the U.S., adding 780 million pounds of peels to landfills where they decompose, forming harmful methane gas. EatCleaner has developed cleaning solutions that allow peels to be cleaned of agricultural sprays, waxes, chemicals, and germ-laden debris. Ripe, clean peels can then be used to make smoothies, banana breads and muffins are rich in fiber, amino acids, and antioxidants.  [ Image credit: ©  EatCleaner  ]

Danone NA Certified As Eco-Friendly B Corporation

April 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Danone North America, maker of plant-based milk beverages and yogurts, was recently certified as a B Corporation that has established standards regarding social and environmental performance. Recently renamed from DanoneWave, the company also changed its legal structure to become a public benefit company. There was some worry that B Corporation certification and environmental friendliness would be costly, but that has not proven to be the case. The company’s largest dairy manufacturing plant has cut water usage, for example, by using new technology. The plant now saves 250,000 gallons a day. The company is encouraging suppliers to adopt sustainable practices, noting that plant-based packaging saves money that can be used to pay workers higher wages.

The Many Possible Uses Of Coffee Grounds

April 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British consumers are very much into coffee: 2.4 billion cups are consumed each year. But making that coffee creates 500,000 tons of grounds each year, most of it ending up in the landfill. Advocates of better use of coffee grounds have come up with a fairly long list of alternatives to simply trashing them. Among the creative options are using grounds in: making cocktails; insect repellant; skincare exfoliant; fueling vehicles; fertilizing gardens and deterring slugs; cooking; keeping shoes and refrigerators fresh; growing mushrooms; and making paint.  [ Image credit: © Wikimedia   ]

Technology Can Cut Down On Food Waste In Foodservice Kitchens

April 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A Portland, Ore.-based foodservice technology company has developed a measurement system that helps restaurants and other establishments reduce overproduction – and waste – of food. LeanPath believes food waste can be prevented in the world’s kitchens through proper measurement using the company’s sophisticated, easy-to-use technologies like scales, cameras, and touchscreen devices that show what’s going into the landfill stream, the compost stream, and even the donation stream. The company last year tracked food waste in more than 1,200 foodservice kitchens in 20 countries. The data and imagery collected from the research revealed that overproduction is the main cause of food waste in foodservice. To solve the problem, kitchens need to: accurately forecast the amount of food needed; learn to properly use knives in food preparation; and creatively use “imperfect produce.”  [ Image credit: ©  LeanPath  ]

Henkel Partners With NGO To Remove Plastic Litter From World’s Oceans, Rivers

March 22, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Henkel has partnered with NGO Waste Free Oceans in a three-year initiative to remove plastic waste from oceans and rivers. Removed plastic waste will be recycled into a million bottles used for its Henkel’s Lovables laundry brand. The two organizations hope to remove enough plastic from rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans to produce 100 metric tons of usable recycled material each year. According to Waste Free Oceans, about 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year, the equivalent of 15 grocery bags filled with plastic for every meter of coastline in the world. Lovables bottles are made from 100 percent recycled material. [ Image credit: © Henkel ]

Company’s AI Technology May Provide Answer To Food Industry Supply Chain Waste

March 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A high-tech home food delivery start-up that is using artificial intelligence technologies to modernize the grocery supply chain has launched a B2B platform targeting food industry companies. Farmstead’s FreshAI model would benefit supermarkets, cafeterias, food production facilities, restaurants, quick service food chains, and convenience stores that need to reduce food waste and improve profit margins. Current methods of supplying stores cause supermarkets to discard 35-40 percent of all perishable foods, the company said. FreshAI, however, allows food businesses to upload operations data securely. The platform then provides daily and weekly recommendations on exactly how much to order of each SKU based on historical sales and consumer tastes.. [ Image credit: © Farmsted   ]

High-Tech “Bumpy” Labels May Extend Shelf Life Of Perishable Foods

March 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British dairy products maker Arla is testing high-tech food labels that gain a “bumpy” texture as food goes bad. When products like milk, cheese, and cream reach the end of their shelf life, gelatin in the label reacts to changes in the packaged food and temperature outside. The resulting molecular breakdown causes the packaging to develop bumps that consumers can see and feel. They no longer need to sniff the product to determine whether it is still safe to eat or drink. Arla teamed up with food technology company Mimica Touch to create the technology that could give suppliers the confidence to offer longer shelf-lives by calculating expire dates based on a best-case scenario.

Voracious Fly Larvae Offer An Interesting Food Waste Solution

March 16, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
For a long time, composters the world over have known about the amazing ability of ravenous black soldier fly larvae [left] to break down food waste and create rich plant fertilizer. Now scientists at the National University of Singapore – which has an abundance of the species – are working to breed the fittest, hungriest flies. At the same time, Singapore's first insect farm, Insectta, is turning about 500 kg of food waste from food suppliers, stalls, and homes into fertilizer every day by 100 kg of black soldier fly larvae. The fertilizer is then used to grow kale, lettuce, and other vegetables. Researchers at Insectta are also studying how the larvae can be turned into other products, like pet food..

Freezing Bread At Home Would Help Cut Down On Food Waste

March 14, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
More than 24 million slices of bread are tossed into the trash every day in the U.K. because it has not been consumed in time. It’s a huge food waste problem that has some simple solutions. Fifty-six percent of Britons aged 18 to 34 eat bread at least four days a week, a poll found, and 31 percent eat it every day. Sixty-nine percent throw bread away every week and 26 percent know they can make toast straight from frozen bread, but don’t do it. A representative of food waste group Love Food Hate Waste said if everyone stored their bread in the freezer it would keep fresh longer and reduce food waste. “You can even use bread straight from the freezer to make toast without needing to defrost it first," said Sarah Clayton..

Carlsberg Denies It, But Tests Show Its Nepal Brewery Is A Polluter

March 10, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Carlsberg has admitted to creating air and water pollution problems near its brewery in Nepal, but claims that an upgraded water purifying plant at the facility – along with employee education on avoiding soot particle pollution – has solved the problem. Not so, according to research conducted the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) and investigative media company Danwatch, which collected water samples near the brewery. The samples, presented to pollution experts, confirmed massive pollution in one one of the biggest rivers in the country caused by the Carlsberg brewery. “The tests show that the river is contaminated in connection with the brewery and there is a risk that fish will die from lack of oxygen,” said a professor and wastewater expert at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).

Colorado Issues Guidelines For Schools That Offer A Food Share Program

March 7, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Schools in Colorado are now allowed to share unwanted school-sponsored lunch items by placing them on a “share table” rather than tossing them in the trash. Shareable items include unopened milk or juice, whole fruits, or packaged items. Hungry students, especially low-income ones, can grab the food for free. Food left over at the end of the day is checked to make sure it’s still safe to eat, then is put back into circulation the next day. The Colorado Department of Education recently released rules that school districts follow, after many districts implemented their own programs. The state also has promotional materials, guidelines, and signs. [ Image credit: © WBUR.org  ]

If Customers Want Fresh Beef, McDonald’s Will Serve It

March 6, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Beginning in May, McDonald’s will make its quarter-pound hamburgers from fresh beef in a move to satisfy customers who have gotten picky about eating processed food. The move will make logistics more complicated for the company and its 14,000 restaurants who have positioned themselves as the place to go for reliable, fast, cheap and delicious food. The company is convinced its basic business is selling burgers, and if consumers want the better quality – and pricier – offerings at fast-casual chains, McDonald’s will offer that. So, franchisees are installing new refrigerators and containers to store the fresh meat. It’s worth the effort, the company feels, to serve burgers that compete well with fast-casual offerings “without sacrificing the consistency and speed McDonald’s customers expect.” [ Image credit: © McDonald's ]

Raw Pressery Juice Relies On Ethics, Innovation, Technology In Fast-Growing Market

March 5, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
In a recent interview, Sreejit Nair, sales director of India’s Rakyan Beverages, said its Raw Pressery juice brand is applying advanced technologies to maintain market leadership in clean-label, cold-pressed juices. The fruit-based beverage category has grown at a CAGR of more than 30 percent over the past decade, thanks to the rise of health-conscious beverage consumers looking to avoid preservatives, chemicals, sugar, and artificial colors. The company uses HPP (high pressure processing) technology to pasteurize its juices, made with fresh fruits and vegetables sourced from farmers across India and abroad. The pasteurization method extends the shelf life of the juices to 21 days. Robotics and inventory automation ensure proper warehousing. The supply chain is using digitization to control costs, quality, temperature, and time. The company is also working with technology developers to create heat sensing devices that help maintain chiller temperature. In terms of innovation, the company recently launched a cold-pressed almond milk in coffee, cacao, and turmeric flavors. This year it expects to introduce a grapefruit-flavored juice, and to extend its product line to both chilled and ambient retail shelves.

Mutual Fund Company Hopes To Force Amazon To Issue A Food Waste Report

March 2, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A mutual fund company with an environmental conscience has petitioned the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to compel Amazon.com’s shareholders to vote on a proposed food waste report. Boston-based Green Century Capital Management says it has worked with Kroger, Costco and other retailers on food waste; Safeway, Publix, Ahold USA, and Target have all addressed the issue. According to the company, which had begun talking about the issue with Whole Foods Market management before last year, it sent a letter to Amazon’s management and board outlining its concerns. But when Amazon said it did not want to issue a food waste report, Green Century filed a shareholder resolution asking that the proposal be voted on by shareholders. Amazon has challenged the shareholder request to the SEC. [ Image credit: ©  Green Century ]

Brewery/Bakery Partnership Recycles Surplus Bread Into Brewskis

February 24, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A New York City bakery is collaborating with a brewery in a project whose overall mission is to cut food – especially bread – waste. Startup brewer Toast Ale uses unsold, but still fresh, bread donated by artisanal bakery Bread Alone, which also donates much of its surplus to churches, food pantries, and other charities. Toast Ale, like all brewers, needs food starch to make its product. The company gets at least some of its food starch from bread donated by Bread Alone Bakery. The starch forms sugars, that are eventually fermented to make beer. According to Toast Ale, it has brewed more than 5,000 gallons of beer in New York, and “saved more than 2,200 pounds of bread."

French Law Has Made It Much Easier For Grocers To Donate Food

February 24, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
France’s two-year-old food waste law bans grocery stores from throwing away edible food. Stores that violate the law can be fined $4,500 for each infraction. But the law has affected much more than grocery stores. A whole subculture of food donation, collection, and distribution has sprung up across the country. Five thousand charities depend on the food bank network, which now gets nearly half of its donations from grocery stores. The new law has increased the quantity and quality of donations, with more fresh foods and products available farther from their expiration date. The law has also cut back on food waste by eliminating certain constraining contracts between supermarkets and food manufacturers. [ Image credit: © Politico Europe  ]

W.V. Legislature Considers Bill To Cut School Food Waste, Ease Hunger

February 24, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A bill wending its way through the West Virginia legislative process will allow distribution of unused school food to students. The bill, which just passed the House of Delegates, is modeled after a nationwide initiative known as Share Table that has the approval of the USDA as a tool to reduce food waste. If enacted, the measure would allow schools to work with county health departments and the USDA to come up with guidelines to distribute unused food to students or have it collected and donated to charitable organizations. More than 79,000 children in the state lived with food insecurity in 2017. The measure now goes to the state Senate for consideration. [ Image credit: © Wikimedia ]

Tyson Foods Turns Its Attention To Protein Snacks, While Tackling Food Waste

February 21, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Giant U.S. meat producer Tysons Foods has set its strategic sights on the snack business in a way that will put some of its scraps to good use. A company R&D team was given six months to figure out a way make protein-based snacks from materials that would otherwise go to the landfill. As consumers turn away from sugary snacks, they are buying more protein snacks, creating a $2.9 billion market in 2017. Tyson thinks it can take ingredients like poultry scraps, spent grain from brewers, and vegetable pulp from juicers to create high-protein snacks. Tyson has already begun to branch out from poultry into snacks: its acquisition of Hillshire Brands in 2014 brought with it the jerky brand Golden Island, and Tyson has used the Hillshire name to launch a line of meat snacks.

February 15, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
In an effort to divert 50,000 tons of food waste from landfills, the New York City sanitation department is implementing new rules for restaurants and grocery stores on handling food waste. Businesses covered by the rules may: hire a private carter, self-transport, or process their food scraps on site for beneficial use, such as for compost; donate unsold food to a charity or food bank; sell or donate the food to a farmer for feedstock; and sell or donate meat by-products to a rendering company. Covered establishments include restaurants with at least 15,000 square feet of floor area, chain restaurants with 100 or more locations in the city, and grocery stores with at least 25,000 square feet of space.

The company said the bottle will be spotlighted in a short video about Nestlé’s use of recycled materials that was created for viewing on social media and on its website. The video encourages consumers to recycle the bottle so that it can be made into a new one.

How “Value-Adding” Unsold Vegetables Solves Two Problems

February 15, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Rather than discard the 40 percent of his cauliflower crop that doesn’t pass the grocer’s cosmetics test, an Australian farmer figured out a way to turn a loss into profit. In a process known as “value-adding,” he took the slightly damaged part of the crop and turned it into the fast-cooking and nutritious “cauli-rice” that is sold in grocery stores. It’s been a complicated venture, because he decided to handle the processing, packaging, marketing, and distribution himself. But sales have been good and are getting better. And there are a lot fewer tons of unsold cauliflowers in the landfill. [ Image credit: © Wikimedia ]

Food Spoilage – Not Plate Waste – Is More Of A Problem In The Home

February 14, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Researchers at Ohio State University have determined that people who on average left just three percent of their food on their plates when choosing their own meals left almost 40 percent behind when given a standard boxed-lunch type of meal. Plate waste at home was 3.5 percent higher when diners went for seconds or thirds. But the study’s lead author also noted that efforts to reduce food waste at home would be better directed toward other conservation tactics, like using up food before it spoils. Plate waste is a more serious problem at school cafeterias and event buffets. [ Image credit: © Portland State University ]

Beverages Made With Wonky Fruits Gain Momentum In The U.K.

February 14, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British sparkling water brand Dash Water, known for using ugly but edible fruits and vegetables, has launched a social media ad campaign with the theme “Squashed for Love” for its newest flavor. The new raspberry-infused water is made with wonky or slightly squashed raspberries. During the run of the campaign, customers can win a three-month supply of the water simply by visiting a local Whole Foods Market and saying the word “squashed” to Dash’s sampling squad. Only eight months old, Dash Water has already spawned imitators: the British brand Cotchel launched an apple and pear juice line in January using fruit too big, too small or too ugly to be sold in grocery stores.

Company’s Edible Produce Spray Extends Shelf Life

February 12, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
California-based Apeel Sciences has developed a plant-based edible skin – dubbed “Edipeel” – that quadruples the shelf life of fruits and vegetables, and reduces need for fungicides and refrigerated produce transport. Edipeel creates an “idealized little micro-climate inside of each piece of produce” that retards spoilage, according to the company founder, who has convinced investors to pump $40 million into the venture since 2012. The company uses materials extracted from plants, usually agricultural by-products such as tomato skins, combines them, then processes them into a water-soluble powder. When mixed with water, the material can be sprayed on produce or the produce can be dipped in it. [ Image credit: © Apeel Sciences ]

February 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
The organic and clean label foods and beverages movement is permeating nearly every segment of the American consumer population, and especially Hispanics, whose buying power has reached $1 trillion annually. A new Packaged Facts report finds that more than half of Hispanic shoppers routinely buy natural/organic groceries, and 60 percent say they are buying more natural/organic foods than ever. Forty percent of Hispanic adults say a store's organic vegetable and fruit selection is an especially important factor when choosing where to shop for groceries, while 33 percent say the store's selection of organic packaged foods and beverages is important. In each of these cases, Hispanics are 15 percent or more above the average for all adults.  [ Image credit: © Sustainable Brands  ]

U.K.’s One Drinks To Introduce Refillable Water Bottles This Spring

February 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
British bottled water company One Drinks says it is committed to producing a refillable bottle for its One Water brand this year. The company is also expected to introduce Tetrapak cartons and canned water, as negative publicity surrounding the environmental impact of plastic bottles continues to build. One Drinks, which is known for supporting water conservation efforts, will launch its new products in the U.K. in the spring and will appear on grocer shelves alongside its One Water PET and glass ranges. PepsiCo distribution partner Voss (Norway) already packages its water in reusable glass bottles.

DoorDash, Feeding America Partner To Deliver Surplus Food To Charities

February 7, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Meal delivery company DoorDash has partnered with Feeding America to tackle two daunting problems at the same time: food waste and hunger. The fundamental problem for foodservice companies who want to donate surplus food to food banks and shelters is logistics. San Francisco-based DoorDash works with local and national restaurants in more than 600 cities across the U.S. and Canada. It has been running a pilot program using their drivers to deliver donated meals to recipient agencies, but had trouble identifying those agencies. Feeding America provided the answer: the partnership gives DoorDash access to the hunger-relief organization’s network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs.

Britvic Opens New High-Capacity Can Production Lines At U.K. Plant

February 6, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Britvic’s three-year, multimillion-dollar U.K. infrastructure investment program has resulted in the creation of three new aluminum can production lines in the Rugby plant, collectively capable of producing 6,000 cans a minute. The $139 million production lines are expected to generate 80 new jobs at the plant, while reducing waste and boosting flexibility in the type of material –aluminum or steel – used.  The company claims that by April its steel can formats will be replaced by aluminum cans, removing 8,000 tons of metal annually.

Authenticity Is RAW Pressery’s Guiding Precept

January 30, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Indian entrepreneur Anuj Rakyan, founder of cold-pressed juice company RAW Pressery, says clean label will be the hot trend in food and beverages in 2018. With that in mind, the company will base an advertising campaign on that trend this year. But Rakyan nevertheless believes that authentic products – not advertising itself – builds consumer trust. That philosophy actually prevented Rakyan from launching a new product – baby food – it spent many months developing. There were distribution problems certainly, but more importantly, the company came to the conclusion that baby food was not within its definition of authentic. Rakyan told his people, “Let’s focus on what we are good at.”

January 29, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Fast-casual restaurant chain Panera has set up a committee of food experts who can advise competitors on how to start using natural “clean” ingredients in their menu items. The experts who comprise Clean Consultant can also be hired by other restaurant chains to learn how to get more active in food policy issues. The feisty company has also begun marketing a revamped breakfast sandwich; asked the FDA to clearly define the term “egg;” and called out rivals Chick-fil-A and Starbucks for using additives in their egg sandwiches.

DoorDash Tries A Unique Solution To The Food Waste Problem

January 28, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Food delivery app DoorDash has come up with a scheme to put the 50 tons of its extra restaurant food that gets tossed annually into dumpsters and landfills to better use. Pilot programs set up in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City allow local restaurants to donate their unused food to food banks. DoorDash delivery people pick up the food and drop it off at Feeding America hubs that in turn redistribute it. After January, DoorDash will seek to partner with national restaurants already available on the app and have those sponsor donations each month.  [ Image credit: © Baskin-Robbins  ]

N.Y. State Legislators Move To Incentivize Commercial Food Donations With Tax Credits

January 20, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
A Republican Senator and colleagues in the New York State legislature is tackling the food waste problem by co-sponsoring legislation to create a tax credit of up to $5,000 for grocery stores, food brokers, wholesalers, restaurateurs, and catering services that donate surplus or about-to-waste food to local food banks and pantries. The tax credit proposal builds on a measure enacted last year that created a tax credit of up to $5,000 for farmers who donate fresh produce to food banks and other emergency food providers. “We need to keep taking commonsense actions like this one to stop perfectly good, fresh, nutritious food from ending up in landfills and waste incinerators and, at the same time, to help combat hunger,” Sen. Thomas F. O’Mara said.  [ Image credit: © Thomas O'Mara  ]

Coca-Cola Envisions “World Without Waste,” Announces Recycling Targets

January 19, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey says his company has “a responsibility to help solve” the global “packaging problem.” With that premise in mind, the company announced a “World Without Waste” initiative to help collect and recycle all of its food and beverage product packaging by 2030. Coca-Cola is already developing technology to ensure that all of its packaging is eventually fully recyclable. Though most of it is already recyclable, Coca-Cola plans to make bottles with an average of 50 percent recycled content by 2030. The company also wants to get consumers involved in the movement: it is enlisting the help of new regional and local partners and key customers to motivate beverage buyers to recycle more packaging.

Growing Public Awareness Will Make Food Waste A Major Issue In 2018

January 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Global food waste is a problem of staggering proportions. It encompasses edible food that is lost, left uneaten or thrown away; imperfect fruits and vegetables that are never sold; and edible food thrown away because it’s past its best-before date. However, growing awareness and concern about the issue might make 2018 the year when minimizing food waste becomes a bona fide movement. A surge in veganism reflects consumer concern not only about what we eat but whence it comes. Global educational campaigns are trying to raise awareness about waste. Food waste initiatives and sustainable practices campaigns are popping up all over, especially in the hotel and restaurant industry. “Public awareness is an important step in changing the food culture,” says sustainability expert Ivano Iannelli.

Suntory Continues Investing In Company’s Biomass-Based Bottle Technology

January 18, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
Suntory Holdings and N.Y.-based Anellotech, which produces cost-competitive chemicals and fuels from non-food biomass, partnered six years ago to build a 25-meter-tall TCat pilot plant that would produce bio-based beverage bottles. Now that the plant has been commissioned, Suntory has invested another $9 million in Anellotech to continue development of a fully bio-based PET beverage bottle. The $9 million is part of a $15 million commitment based on the company’s achievement of certain performance goals. The next step is to test process viability and the ability to scale up to commercial operation at the plant. TCat-8 technology produces the renewable aromatic hydrocarbons known as BTX (viz, benzene, toluene and xylene) made from wood and agricultural residues used to make plastics. Suntory hopes to integrate Anellotech's bio-bottles into its sustainability program.
