A report issued by the UN for 2021 on food loss and waste highly praised the quality of the study of waste and food loss in the Kingdom to be at the forefront of 17 countries that participated in good studies on quality, according to the evaluation contained in the UN report.
The report affirmed that the Kingdom is one of three countries in West Asia; excelled in formulating their data on the issue of food waste at the household level; as the UN described it in its report with the same high reliability; because the Kingdom represented by the Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO) based its studies on the analysis of food waste composition.
The UN report also drew attention to the Kingdom’s distinction; as one of two countries that conducted non-household studies of food waste; through a baseline study that SAGO worked on. It included a direct and widespread measurement of food loss and waste. This is on a range of geographical locations and retail stores.
