„This award motivates us even more to continue the awareness and food waste reduction initiatives in Romania. It’s a great joy to be awarded at a global level. The received accolade proves us again that the theme is one with global interest, that is worth uniting our forces and continue to take action. We have big plans for next year. We want to work together with the supermarkets, consumers, restaurants, mass-media and to get involved from the legislative point of view in the food waste issue. We have a dedicated team formed exclusively of young voluntaries and alongside us we want to bring in this field the institutions, stores, restaurants, schools and, of course, consumers’ representatives,” said the JCI Cluj’s president, Corina Brandusan.
