Food waste management has gained increased emphasis in recent times, especially in the context of the recently adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The initiative is driven mainly by the need to address declining natural resources, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to reduce waste disposal into landfills. The current study gives an overview of food waste management including global trends and regional activities, discusses various solutions for food waste management, gives an idea about various pathways that could be adopted, and innovative technology and management solutions. Emerging business models for food waste management have been identified and Porter’s Five Forces Analyses were done for the various food waste management pathways.
