Agribusiness Thinking About Waste?

It’s encouraging to see anyone in agriculture talking about reducing waste. It’s especially so when they’re part of Big Ag. For example, a¬†speaker at the Bayer CropScience Ag Issues Forum raising the flag against waste.

Also, yesterday and today I’ve been at the Shared Tables Symposium at UNC and Duke. I’ve been heartened to hear several speakers, including¬†the great food writer Tom Philpott, noting the importance of reducing waste throughout the food chain.

Based on what I’m seeing and hearing, I do think that efficiency will become a major buzzword in the years ahead as we stare down the prospect of feeding the estimated 9 billion global citizens of 2050.
