Why this course?
One third of all the food produced for human consumption is wasted every year. These 1.3 billion tons of food would be enough to feed 3 billion people. This situation is an absurdity when considering that over 820 million people are suffering from hunger (WHO). Food waste has also a huge environmental impact, knowing the carbon, water, chemical and land footprint of agriculture. From an economic perspective, the BCG estimates that this global food waste issue is worth $1.2 trillion but also represents a $700 billion opportunity.
LightBlue’s mission is to reconcile business excellence and sustainability and outstanding ROI. We have gained a unique expertise on food waste prevention through 7 years of relentless efforts. We are convinced that awareness-raising and capacity building is key to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Preventing food waste is one of the most effective solutions to fight climate change, this is why we want to share our expertise and insights to equip professionals with new skills, in-depth knowledge and practical methodologies and tools to take action and broaden the impact.

About this course
This course covers why food waste as a topic has evolved from absent to predominant, not only as a 1.2 trillion dollars global issue in the context of climate change and growing populations (BCG 2018), but as an outstanding opportunity to impact both the sustainability performance and the profitability of players across the supply chain.
An overview of the food loss and waste along the supply chain helps participants get a better grip on the issue, existing solutions at each critical point, and touches on the topics of circularity, local sourcing and closed-loop systems.
One module is focusing on technical solutions existing in F&B operations from inception to monitoring the reduction of food waste during the implementation. The importance of using new performance metrics, being financial and non-financial, is studied and discussed, and participants get exposure to existing innovative solutions, technologies and certification currently available in the industry.
If you reach at least 75% success at your evaluated assignments (at the end of each module) and at your final test (once completed all modules), you will receive your Certificate of Proficiency and get a boost in your career!

Each module will be delivered live by an expert lecturer, and you will have the opportunity to learn from special guests and your fellow classmates during interactive activities.
