The SAVE FOOD Initiative is a cooperative venture between the world food program of the United Nations, FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization), the United Nations’ Environment Program (UNEP) and Messe Düsseldorf GmbH launched to combat worldwide food loss and wastage. Launched in 2011, speakers from business, research and governmental spheres get together to shed some light on the various facets of the food waste problem.

To be held for the first time in Southeast Asia, the SAVE FOOD conference will zoom into the Food Loss and Waste (FLW) solutions targeted for this region. This is an opportunity for stakeholders across the value chain to discuss FLW reduction.
