Foodland to the Rescue

It's not just our food that's fresh from Foodland. It's our ideas around making a greener future. Approximately 58% of produce in Canada is lost or wasted in the process from farm to fork, which is the same as releasing 9.8 million tonnes of CO2 or adding another 2.1 million cars on the road.

And that's why we're committed to reducing food waste.

We're proud to introduce the #FoodRescue movement. With this 4th "R" - Rescue, we're helping spread the message of making food go further. So, we're here to help our communities take action against food waste at home.
