Why Join

Stronger together

The scale and complexity of food loss and waste creates a challenge that cannot be faced alone. By working collaboratively across the hospitality and food service sector we can share best practices, expertise and resources.  

 The COVID-19 crisis has exposed the fragility of our food system and reinforced the need for all players to join forces to create a sustainable value chain for today and tomorrow. 

 Together, we can make a big impact.

Less food waste saves money –
membership of the IFWC makes good business sense

As well as the environmental and ethical case for reducing food loss and waste, the economic benefits are proven. Studies conducted by Champions 12:3 for the catering and hotel sectors showed that every $1 dollar spent on reducing food waste delivered a return of between $6-7.
