Stop Food Waste Day is about educating and igniting change...

Food waste is central to some of the key challenges facing the world today, including hunger and poverty, climate change, health and wellbeing and the sustainability of agriculture and oceans.

.As a global leader in foodservice, Compass Group US introduced Stop Food Waste Day in 2017 before going global in 2018. Our commitment to tackling food waste is aligned to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development goal #12.5 as we work to halve food waste by 2030. Our commitment stretches from working with suppliers, implementing sustainable practices in our operations and raising the public profile of the issue.


Food waste is a massive issue facing us all. As a global leader in food service operating in 40+ countries, we are uniquely positioned to raise awareness and make a positive impact to reduce food waste.
