In Singapore, food wastage was higlighted by the government as one of the five largest sources of waste, and through the 2019 Year Towards Zero Waste campaign, Singaporeans were encouraged to adopt food wastage reducing habits from ordering what you can consume to asking for less. But is this enough? We discuss what more can be done and how does the private sector play a role in this?

The Panelists:
Pamela Low, (Treedots)
TreeDots is a homegrown social enterprise that reduces food loss by redistributing unsold inventory from suppliers to businesses and households. Unsold inventory can arise from reasons like *overstocking, where food has to be imported with minimum order quantities and **cosmetic filtering*, where food is filtered out of the supply chain for primarily size and shape reasons. Pamela is part of the Business Development team at TreeDots, spearheading the B2C channel to offer the variety of produce from seafood, meats, vegetables to fruits at deeply discounted clearance pricing (up to 80% off supermarket prices) allowing households to save cost and save food.

Thomas Mattscherodt (Head of Project Management Office, ALBA)
For the past 5 years, Thomas has been coordinating international waste management projects in Singapore and Asia in the field of waste collection and waste treatment plants, including the design of food waste treatment plants to produce Biogas.

Mr Christopher Tan (Deputy Director, Waste & Resource Management Department, NEA)
Christopher is a Deputy Director at the Waste & Resource Management Department of the NEA. In this role, he is responsible for the development of plans and strategies for a sustainable waste management system in Singapore, including measures for the waste streams of e-waste, food waste and packaging waste.

Travin Singh, (Co-founder & CEO, CRUST)
Crust is a Singapore-based Food Tech company, focusing on upcycling food loss. Their mission is to reduce 1% of global food loss by 2030. They also aim to push the F&B industry standard towards one of sustainability and to expand their message of maximizing resources and living a sustainable lifestyle to companies and individuals. Thus far, they have saved 275 kg of bread through production of 4482 liters of beer and that equates to roughly 2135kg worth of carbon emission saved based on a study done by BBC.
