The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is a trade association that has been representing the leading food, beverage and consumer product companies in the U.S. for more than 100 years, and it notably uses storytelling to promote sustainability and to provide nutritious, affordable and high-quality foods to both the U.S. and the world.
In 2011, GMA launched the Cross-industry Food Waste Reduction Alliance, which is a standalone project that GMA runs with its retail trade association partners and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) to address the challenge of food waste in the U.S.
Waste360 recently spoke with Meghan Stasz, GMA’s senior director of sustainability, about the association’s sustainability and food waste efforts. Stasz will be moderating a panel on how the industry is working to reduce and divert food waste across the supply chain at WasteExpo’s brand new Food Recovery Forum in June.
