MBB hosting online seminars on food waste at home & at work through ongoing project


With food waste becoming a hot topic globally, on a European level and locally too, the Malta Business Bureau (MBB) is leading discussions through a series of seminars on food waste reduction, expanding these sessions to an international audience.

Organised as part of the Business Against Food Waste Campaign led by the MBB, in partnership with HSBC Malta and ITS, six seminars and two webinars have been organised so far, hosting 250 participants to discuss the issue of food waste at work and at home.

With food waste becoming a major concern – in Europe, it is estimated that 20 percent of the food produced is thrown away, while Maltese figures stand at 22 to 25 per cent – the series attracted participants from several sectors, including manufacturing, hospitality, services, retail, the public sector, post-secondary schools, and the general public.

Another set of webinars will be held on 28th and 29th May, and will feature an expert line-up of speakers, each bringing a different perspective to the food waste challenge which has several implications, including significant environmental issues, economic losses, and ethical concerns surrounding throwing away food.

Reflecting on the progress achieved through the campaign, MBB Project Manager Gabriel Cassar said “reducing food waste is one area which holds a lot of potential and which will result in significant environmental and economic benefits. The strong interest seen so far shows that we are on the right track. Naturally, the current situation has forced us to rethink our strategy. However, we are confident that online training is the way forward and will allow us to reach even more people, while reducing travel and our carbon footprint.”

To register for the final set of webinars in May, contact Glenn Bugeja, HSBC Manager for Corporate Sustainability, on glenn.bugeja@hsbc.com.
