Tackling Food Waste

Reducing food waste in Canada can help save consumers money, improve food security, support efficiency in the agriculture and food sector, and significantly cut our pollution.

We created Canada’s first ever Food Waste Reduction Challenge, investing $20 million into innovative ways across the economy to cut food waste.

A re-elected Liberal government will:

  • Create a new No-Waste Food Fund to help build a circular food economy in Canada where no food is wasted, from farm to table. The fund will help all players along the food supply chain to commercialize and adopt ways to eliminate, reduce, or repurpose food waste. We will continue to partner with, and support, community-based food security organizations to make sure all Canadians have access to healthy food.
