The Food Waste Opportunity: Why Reducing Wasted Food is More Important Now Than Ever With Special Guest Nathan Lohrmann from ReFED
Nathan Lohrmann most recently served as a Stakeholder Engagement Manager at ReFED, supporting ReFED’s COVID-19 response, partnerships, networks, and the annual Food Waste Summit hosted by ReFED. His career in the food and beverage industry has spanned management consulting, corporate strategy, and a startup. He’s currently pursuing his master’s in environmental science and MBA through the University of Michigan’s Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise.
ReFED is a multi-stakeholder nonprofit, powered by an influential network of the nation’s leading business, nonprofit, foundation, and government leaders committed to reducing U.S. food waste. ReFED takes a data-driven approach to move the food system from acting on instinct to insights to solve our national food waste problem. Solutions already exist to cut food waste by 20% nationwide. ReFED has identified 27 of the best opportunities through the Roadmap to Reduce U.S. Food Waste, a first-of-its-kind economic analysis, making it easier for stakeholders across the food supply chain to meet the national 50% reduction goal by 2030. The ReFED Roadmap revolutionized the way the industry looks at food waste — looking beyond challenges and identifying concrete opportunities to save money and resources, feed people, and create jobs. ReFED’s continued efforts include promoting date label standardization through a multi-stakeholder initiative; collecting data and generating insights on the innovation taking place to reduce food waste; and centralizing food waste policies at the state and Federal level. These tools help businesses, nonprofits, government, and investors put the most impactful solutions to reduce food waste into action.
