GMA, FMI Program Tackle Food Waste

The Grocery Manufacturers Association and the Food Marketing Institute have launched a three-year initiative to help the industry reduce food waste.

The program's leadership committee includes executives from General Mills, Publix Super Markets, Wegmans Food Markets, Supervalu, Ahold USA, the National Restaurant Association, Feeding America and Waste Management.

The program will seek to get more nonpurchased food to food banks, as well as reduce food waste sent to landfills through efforts such as having food retailers, manufacturers and restaurants pool waste to work with composters, reports Supermarket News.
