Food Recycling License

Get your Food Recycling License hassle-free and kick-start your business with Darshan Corporate. A “Food recycling license” is an authorization that allows individuals or organizations to engage in activities related to food waste management or food recycling. Food wastage is not new and now causing concern on a worldwide scale. A third of the food produced globally each year is thought to be wasted or lost, according to the Food & Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (UNFAO). According to the Global Food Waste Index 2021, India came in second place, only behind China, with 68.8 million tonnes of food wasted, with a value of almost 92,000 crores and annual growth rates of 8% to 10%. According to CSR Journal's estimation, the amount of wasted food produced in India is comparable to the amount eaten in the UK. Supermarkets, hotels, food processing businesses, restaurants, and weddings are the main offenders of food waste in India. Food waste has an impact on both the environment and the availability of resources in India. When food waste is dumped in landfills, it produces a large amount of methane, a greenhouse gas, which when combined with carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons raises the temperature of the earth's surface.
