USDA Secretary Perdue Commits To Raising Food Waste Awareness

May 8, 2018: 12:00 AM EST

At a recent roundtable discussion, U.S Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue discussed food waste with legislators, food industry leaders, and non-profit groups to raise awareness while discussing solutions with leaders throughout the food supply chain. Perdue later issued a statement saying that America’s food supply should “nourish those in need, not fill the trash.” He said groups and companies should cooperate with each other on finding “holistic” solutions to the food waste problems. USDA remains committed to helping reduce food waste, Perdue said, and “excited to work with all stakeholders from farm to fork.” Food loss and waste eats up nearly 40 percent of the food supply in the U.S., while millions of Americans need access to safe, wholesome, affordable food, the USDA said.
