“FAO’s close review of what we know about food loss offers a reminder that there is no one-size-fits-all solution,” says Máximo Torero.
Maximo Torero is Chief Economist and Assistant Director General for Economic and Social Development at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Rome. Before joining FAO, he served at the World Bank Group as executive director for Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. He led the Markets, Trade and Institutions Division at the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington, D.C. between 2006 – 2016. While his expertise span many areas, he has a special interest in “kid power”, or how children can influence their parents.
