Action Kashkarikas© is an international initiative to raise awareness on food
waste and food loss. We contribute to raise awareness, to teach, to learn
and to share best practices in food waste prevention.
Food waste is a highly visible and urgent challenge that is gaining importance worldwide. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, one third of all food produced globally (around 1.3 billion tons per year) for human consumption is wasted. Wasting food is not only an ethical, a social and an economical issue but it also depletes our environment of limited natural resources.We, cooks have the opportunity to have a significant impact on reducing food waste at the source by becoming more engaged, creative and focused in cooking.
We give conferences, do workshops and organize fundraising dinners. We work with the local universities, cooking schools, associations, restaurants, kitchen teams and directly with the consumer.
We cook tasty, diverse, healthy and inspiring food by using local, seasonal and "real" ingredients. We respect the ingredient by using the root to leaf concept: fruit-vegetable trimmings, peels, left-overs and low cost ingredients are perfectly and deliciousmy edible. We teach how, we waste less, we eat healthier, we save money, and we contribute to the environment.
Through our project we have visited many countries since 2016. We are proud to have taken part in a challenge around food loss and food waste and get the opportunity to contribute:
-to prevent and reduce food losses and food waste,
-to improve eating ethically,
-to food sustainability,
-to protect the eco-system,
-to transmit our know-how to young generations,
