Costa bat­tles waste

Cruise Weekly - - NEWS -

COSTA Cruises has part­nered with not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, Fon­dazione Banco Ali­mentare On­lus, to al­low food which has been pre­pared but not served to be re­trieved and dis­trib­uted to lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The project launched over the week­end on board Costa Di­adema dur­ing its call at Savona.

It fol­lows a law in Italy which came into force in Sep which fa­cil­i­tates do­na­tion of food waste.

“We worked with Costa Cruises for eight months to or­gan­ise a food sur­plus man­age­ment pro­ce­dure that would al­low us to sal­vage high-qual­ity and high-nu­tri­tional value food,” An­drea Gius­sani, pres­i­dent of the Fon­dazione Banco Ali­mentare On­lus said.
