In addition to this, the initiative's other goals are to reduce waste in food systems; promote sustainable consumption and production; disseminate practices for better sustainability in storage, transport, processing and trade; integrate small farmers into the sustainable production and supply of fresh food; build the capacity of all countries, and in particular developing countries, to adopt innovative technologies and methods to tackle food loss and waste.
