According to a report by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), a third of the entire food produced on earth gets wasted each year. A major culprit in this is the food and beverage industry. So, the industry is responding in ways to counter this. Reducing food wastage will ultimately bring down costs and would also be beneficial to the environment. It is a win-win situation, so apps have been launched for this such as The Food Life, Zero Mash, Too good to go and Opti Miam. The third one mentioned already has a substantial presence in France across the Novotel, Ibis and Mercure group hotels. Another initiative is that of Costa Cruises which serves a whopping fifty-four million meals annually on its fourteen ships. They plan to halve food wastage by 2020. A tourism consulting firm PATA (Pacific Asia Travel Association) has undertaken another comprehensive project code named Buffet. The term Buffet here is an acronym for Building an Understanding for Food Excess in Tourism. They have launched a plea on their website with special emphasis on tactics to be used to curb excesses in food.
