FLPC’s Founder and Director Emily Broad Leib was interviewed by Pulin Modi for change.org’s blog about the Clinic’s work, and the role the public can play in reducing food waste and affecting policy and legislation around food waste.
Excerpt from the interview:
“…consumers can make a huge difference in the market by virtue of their purchasing power, and the past few years have seen marked changes in business practices because of changing consumer demand. Asking what is in your food and where it came from, and making the decision to spend extra money (if you have that luxury) to buy better items can impact the market. Even though consumers have to pay a premium for healthy or sustainable products right now, over time these items will be more widely available and thus more affordable thanks to millions of consumers pushing the market.”
