About one-quarter of food emissions come from food that is never eaten. Of this 15% of the emissions are from food losses in the agri-supply chain. According to FAO, of all food categories, grains are the highest contributor to the carbon footprint.
Since its inception, Origo has been working to eliminate post-harvest losses. Through our focus on enhancing the value chain, timely procurement and logistics support, and scientific storage practices, Origo is effectively reducing commodity wastage and harmful carbon emissions. To date, we have reduced commodity wastage up to 3 million tonnes, effectively bringing down 2.3 mega tonnes of CO2 emissions.
