Atinmo, who spoke with The Nation, said reducing the amount of food wastes saves resources and money. He said improving resource efficiency and reducing consumption of materials should become an everyday practice for food and drink businesses.
He said an increase in the availability of smaller packs, clearer date labelling and improved storage and freezing guidance would help food manufacturers to reduce food wastes.
Calling for a significant reduction in the wastes companies send to landfills, Atinmo said waste reduction makes good business sense – in terms of reducing factory inefficiencies.
He said it is also a right thing to do on environmental grounds.
Atinmo, who is the president, African Nutrition Societies (ANS), said food and packaging wastes generated at factories could be recycled and put to better use.
