Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As a fellow food systems consultant passionate about reducing food waste, I’ve enjoyed collaborating with Eva and Littlefoot Ventures on this newsletter. My experience in strategic innovation and sustainability for many stakeholders gives me a unique perspective into the ever-evolving food industry. Please see forward-thinking initiatives spearheaded by industry leaders in the articles below:
- Imperfect Foods announced its pledge to become a net-zero carbon company by 2030. Imperfect remains an industry leader with its commitments to the environment. Read the linked article to learn more about how Imperfect plans to meet its new goal.
- New technology turns food, water, and animal waste into a competitively priced green jet fuel alternative. The researchers at US National Renewable Energy Laboratory plan to test fly Southwest flights using the new fuel in 2023.
- As companies continue to make eco-friendly pledges, Food Dive explores the question of industry progress in their most recent “Trendline: Food and Beverage Sustainability” report.
I look forward to connecting with all of you and continuing to improve our food system. Thank you for engaging and reading!
All the best,
