House approves bill on recycling excess food

/ 04:46 AM December 16, 2020

The House of Representatives has approved a bill that would reduce food wastage through the donation or recycling of excess edible food. In Monday’s plenary session, 221 congressmen voted to pass House Bill No. 7956, or the “Food Surplus Reduction Act,” on third and final reading with no abstentions. The measure consolidated 17 bills, all of which would promote the donation and recycling of excess, edible food. The measure covers food manufacturers, food establishments such as restaurants, cafes, diners, fast-food chains and hotels, supermarkets, and culinary schools. Owners of these establishments are required to segregate their food surplus. —Julie M. Aurelio
