Combatting food waste with exciting, actionable ideas.

An event hosted by RaboDirect

An incredible 18 million metric tons of food are thrown away every year in Germany alone. That is almost exactly 18 million metric tons too much. As a financial services provider with a focus on agriculture and the food industry, Rabobank has long been committed to the respectful and resource-efficient consumption and management of food. Under the banner of “Banking for Food”, we support projects that combat food waste worldwide.
