SDG Target 12.3 is a once-in-a-generation call to action to cut in half per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer level, and reducing food losses along production and supply chains (including post-harvest losses) by 2030. Governments and companies should adopt this target as their own, start measuring to manage, and boldly take action. In response to ambiguity of the exact meaning of SDG Target 12.3, this document proposes a clarification and an interpretation of the SDG target on food loss and waste which could be considered “best practice” for how governments and companies should interpret SDG Target 12.3.
