A circular economy takes place when the end-of-life of a product or a material is restored and turned into a useful resource that eliminates waste. Generating a circular economy will help to reduce waste and ultimately contribute to climate action.

Food waste is one of the largest amounts of waste sent to landfills. In Malaysia, the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Corporation reported that more than 16,600 tonnes of food are wasted every day, of which about 24% are edible and capable of feeding close to three million people a day.
