Halve food loss
By 2030, food demand is predicted to have increased by 50%. At the same time, one-third of all food is wasted either in the fields, through transport or with the end-consumer. A.P. Moller - Maersk holds about 27% of the global market for transporting food in refrigerated containers both by sea and on land. Our ambition is to use our competencies and products for expanding cold chains to earlier stages in the supply chain. This will be part of our provision of end-to-end services, and we believe it holds significant business potential. It also enables potentially large reductions in food loss, making it a clear sustainability priority for A.P. Moller - Maersk.
