Almost 1/3 of the world's food production is wasted, and 80% of that waste occurs before the food even reaches a store or restaurant. From farming practices through logistics, the corporate Venture Capital arm of Maersk, the world's largest container shipping company, is investing cash to help address this problem. Imagine what would happen if every other major corporation also invested to solve global development challenges in their own sectors?

Peter Votkjaer Jorgensen is a Venture Partner in Maersk Growth, leading the efforts within the Fight Food Waste investment domain. Maersk Growth partners with and invests in ventures with the potential of creating exponential growth within transport and logistics and defining the future of trade.
