Measures against food waste
Eleven million tons of food end up in garbage in Germany every year. The federal cabinet has therefore adopted a national strategy to reduce food waste. By 2030, food waste in Germany is to be halved at retail and consumer level and the food waste generated along production and supply chains is to be reduced, too. The Federal Government is thus following the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) adopted by the United Nations. REWE and PENNY have been working intensively against food waste for years, because throwing away food contradicts the social, ecological and economic beliefs of the REWE Group. The measures are very diverse.
