Costa battles waste
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.
