Reducing food loss and waste can play a crucial role in the transformation of agrifood systems by increasing the availability of food, and contributing to food security and healthy diets.

This can generate win–wins across several SDGs, including nutrition targets, while contributing to environmental sustainability.

As part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – specifically, SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production - at Lucta, we continue to work for the cause, promoting technologies, innovative solutions, and good practices to manage food quality, reducing food loss and waste.
