Collecting unsold products and surplus from food companies.
Partage actively fights against food waste by collecting unsold products and surplus from Geneva’s food companies: fresh produce, long-life dry products, fruit and vegetables and hygience products.
Partage is a committed protagonist, which participates in the implementation of 3 main political lines relating to Agenda 2030’s Switzerland-based method of sustainable consumption and production:
- the increase in consumption is putting growing pressure on the environment: today Switzerland has already exceeded the planet’s capabilities in several areas,
- inform and raise awareness among consumers so that they make sustainable purchasing decisions and adopt consumption behaviours that conserve resources,
- Switzerland produces the most urban waste of any country in Europe: communicate about preventative measures with regards to production, transport, distribution and consumption.
Partage is distributing more than 800 tons of foodstuffs and hygiene products to 48 associations.
