Advancing food waste reduction in the hospitality sector

The International Food Waste Coalition (IFWC) and its hotel partners, the Accor group and Best Western Hotels & Resorts , are honored to be winners of the call for projects of the National Food Program (PNA) launched by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Labor and Solidarity, in collaboration with ADEME.

Dedicated to reducing food waste, the project will aim to support hotel establishments to achieve ambitious levels of waste in line with their operational context. In addition, it will integrate the fight against food waste into a global sustainable food approach, by involving consumers and evaluating virtuous economic models.

This project, carried out nationally from May 2024 to the end of 2025, will be managed by the IFWC in partnership with Accor and Best Western Hotels & Resorts. It will highlight the importance of collaboration between the public and private sectors to step up the fight against food waste. Also, the IFWC continues to encourage other hotel groups to join this project to address the challenges of sustainable food in the sector.
