Food Waste Publications

VCMI has led and co-authored a number of publications on food waste (links below), with over 100,000 citations of its staggering $27 billion estimation of annual food waste in Canada. On December 10, 2014, VCMI released its latest report, which states that the actual quantifiable amount is $31 billion.

On October 4, 2016, VCMI released its latest report, which highlights the issue of food loss and waste (FLW) in Canada and, drawing on global comparisons, puts forward proposals to more effectively tackle food and associated wastes. It proposes how interactions within government and between government and industry be improved to enable the creation of an objective pragmatic roadmap for reducing FLW in Canada.
