Claire van Enk
"In sub-Saharan Africa, nearly 50% of fruit and vegetables never make it to market for consumption. This means lost income for farmers and economies."
Claire is the founder and CEO of Farm to Feed, a charity that collects food waste (food rescue) from farms, in order to donate it to food-insecure groups. The social business, that was added later on, sells food to impact-driven organisations.
In the interview, Claire talks extensively about the topic of food waste, her charity, which focuses on the prevention of food waste and feeding food insecure groups, and the link between food waste and climate change.
