The Grocery Manufacturers Association and Food Marketing Institute commissioned report ,The GMA and FMI have launched a three-year industry-wide effort focused on addressing food waste, in particular from the food manufacturer to pre-consumer. The initiative aims to decrease the amount of food sent to landfills and increase the amount that is available for higher value diversion elsewhere, including to food banks. The companies and organizations involved in this effort have been undertaking an assessment
that will include a comprehensive survey of the sources of food waste. The initiative is also focusing on identifying public policies that could expand the diversion of food from landfills (whether to food banks or other beneficial uses) and new technologies and industry practices that support its goals.
