  1. 1. SUCCESSFUL REDUCTION OF FOOD WASTE ALONG THE FOOD VALUE CHAIN The success story of the Italian Food Banks
  2. 2. Since 1967 Food Banks have facilitated the access to food for the most deprived and given a contribution to the sustainability of food systems and the food environment at community level. In 2015 over 1,200 Food Banks in 60 countries worldwide supported 120,000 CSOs that assisted almost 60 million deprived people.
  3. 3. THE ITALIAN FOOD BANKS A bridge between the food supply chain and CSOs dealing with food aid. To facilitate the most deprived to have access to food and to prevent safe and nutritious food from becoming waste.
  4. 4. The daily activity of Food Banks originates a virtuous circle involving many stakeholders: public authorities, food supply chain, CSOs, volunteers, and citizens and generates a socio-economic and environmental benefit to the advantage of the most deprived people and the common good of the community.
  5. 5. All the food business operators of the food supply chain, including Food Banks, contribute to a global nutrition sensitive food system. Recovery and redistribution of safe and nutrition food for direct human consumption is already possible worldwide. This model can enable local food environments and is adaptable to community contexts worldwide.
