#87 - Food Waste and Circular Economy (Daniel Solomon)
A discussion about a severe topic: Food Waste. When talking about food that is produced and not consumed, we are not only debating about ending food hunger (which is unacceptable these days!) - but also it's a conversation about sustainability, environment, and human behavior change. According to the "Food wastage footprint and Climate Change" report (FAO, UN), if we counted food waste as a country, in terms of its carbon output, it would be the world's 3rd largest emitter of CO2 after China and the US. There are several start-ups focused on solving this issue, and in this episode, we talk to one of them, located in the UAE. Daniel Solomon is a serial entrepreneur and a startup builder, including EroeGo - UAE’s first Ugly food produce service - that aims to eliminate food waste by automating discounts. Previously, Daniel was the CEO and founder of EROE, a digital agency serving global brands such as PwC and Toyota. He also held positions at Publicis Sapient and has an MBA from the University of Liverpool.
