Every year 1.6 billion tons of food, one-third of the total amount of food produced globally, are lost or go to waste while nearly 10% of the world’s population goes hungry. This mismanagement of resources is developing into a serious global problem, hence the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals that set a target of halving food loss and waste by 2030.
Changing the food and beverage system to one based on the principles of the circular economy is one of the most powerful mechanisms available to fight this problem.
The food system can be fundamentally redesigned by reconnecting communities with local food production and changing the way we grow food, design food products and handle by-products and waste.
Sinowatek can help to change food manufacturing systems by using the progressive Pulse Combustion Drying (PCD) technology to transform food products, food by-products and waste streams into powders while keeping the major quality parameters of these products largely intact.
By preserving food and food waste in such a way, businesses can create new value-added products and close the circular economy loop.
