One-third of all food produced each year is wasted or spoiled due to inefficiencies and fraud in the supply chain, leading to the emission of greenhouse gases when the food ends up in landfills. This, combined with the energy required to produce, transport, and store the food, contributes to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
40% of food waste occurs in the supply chain because of a lack of visibility and transparency in the supply chain process. This means that companies cannot accurately monitor and manage their inventory, leading to overproduction and food spoilage. The lack of information sharing and collaboration across supply chain partners further exacerbates the issue.

Wasting food implies the loss of valuable resources used to produce it, including natural resources, water, minerals, human labor, and energy. Tracifier aims to optimize supply chain efficiency, thereby protecting natural resources from waste and contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 15, which promotes life and land conservation.
