The Globe and Mail hosted a webcast on May 18 to explore strategies to reduce food waste. Statistics show more than half of all the food produced for Canada ends up in the garbage due to waste throughout the supply chain including homes, retailers, foodservice businesses and producers.

Ryan MacDonald, senior editor of climate, environment and resources with The Globe and Mail hosted the event, opening with a pre-recorded interview with Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. Ms. Bibeau discussed new policy responses to food loss including the Food Waste Reduction Challenge.
