Preventing Food Waste, Saving Lives & the Planet

The Lost Food Project (TLFP) is a not-for-profit organisation in Malaysia that rescues good food that would otherwise end up in landfills, and redistributes it to those in need. They have also teamed up with other organisations to tackle issues on saving food and reducing waste, and in 2023 alone, they rescued a whopping 2.28 million kg of food, the equivalent of over 6.5 million nutritious meals, and prevented 5.7 million kg of greenhouse gases from being emitted. Their latest endeavour is the Surplus Pet Food Project, an initiative aimed at supporting animal shelters, rescuers and street feeders. We catch up with Suzanne Mooney, TLFP's founder, and Gayathri Liew (PR and Communications Manager, TLFP) to discuss their new initiatives in preventing food waste.
