Reduce Food Waste by Extending Shelf-Life, Naturally
Food waste can be reduced by extending shelf-life and improving safety using various interventions during the food preparation processes, including World Technology Ingredients, Inc.’s (WTI) naturally-derived functional food ingredients. WTI’s vinegar and lemon juice-based ingredients preserve food, prolong shelf-life, enhance safety, and protect consumers from foodborne illnesses. By incorporating WTI’s ingredients, food manufacturers, restaurants and food service companies have more satisfied customers, mitigate supply chain risk and reduce food waste, all in a truly sustainable way.
The statistics today on food waste are very concerning. On average, Americans waste one pound of food, per person, per day.1
Together, we can make meaningful improvements to reduce food waste. About 50% of consumer food waste can be prevented by extending the shelf-life of food.2
