COSTA CRUISES CELEBRATES WORLD FOOD DAY EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR THANKS TO “4GOODFOOD”

Luigi Filoramo

On the occasion of World Food Day, celebrated each year by FAO, we have restated our commitment to recognizing the value of food. Through “4GOODFOOD”, we set the objective of halving food waste fleetwide by 2020; today, approximately 18 months after fleetwide implementation of the project, 4GOODFOOD has already brought about a reduction of over 35% in food wastage on Costa’s ships, enabling both the creation of 100 food gardens in Africa in collaboration with the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity and the donation of more than 150,000 portions of food in partnership with Fondazione Banco Alimentare Onlus.

In Costa Cruises, every day of the year we do our utmost across the fleet to help achieve the objectives promoted by FAO on World Food Day; we do this through our 4GOODFOOD program, which comprises our joint efforts on the path to recognizing the value of food and responsible consumption.”, said Stefania Lallai, Costa Cruises Sustainability and External Relations Director.
