About the Event
Together with the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry
According to the World Wildlife Fund–Philippines, an estimated 2,175 tons of food scraps in Metro Manila alone are thrown in the garbage every day when the poorest of the poor are scrounging for recoverable food scraps in garbage bins. Food resources have been greatly affected by the lockdown restrictions, where there was also a significant increase in food loss and waste, especially on perishable agricultural products.
The impact of the COVID-19 further exacerbates the situation not only of the supplies but also the demand for food. Farmers and food producers can't move their produce, families, and households not getting their main essentials due to the lockdowns imposed by the government.
In this webinar, in partnership with BASF, we have invited Ms. Cherrie Atilano, the Founder of AGREA, and set up the Move Food Initiative, an online, Google form-based food ordering solution that offers consumers and farmers means to move food, especially during the lockdowns.
