International Day of Awareness on Food Loss and Waste Reduction
Code: 703
The stamp commemorates the international day, ratified on 29th September and first promoted by San Marino at the UN, to raise awareness on an issue whose implications have results both on climate change, on sustainability of food production, on world hunger and on the promotion of fair societies.

This year we celebrate the first ever observance of the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste. It also comes during the global COVID-19 pandemic, that has brought about a global wake-up on the need to transform and rebalance the way our food is produced and consumed.

Reducing food losses and waste is essential in a world where the number of people affected by hunger has been slowly on the rise since 2014, and tons and tons of edible food are lost and/or wasted every day. Food loss and waste also puts unnecessary pressure on the natural resource base and on the environment, depleting the natural resource base and generating greenhouse gases.

Read more and discover what you can do. Take action, start something. Stop food loss and waste. For the people. For the planet.
