Second Harvest and Value Chain Management International (VCMI) are researching food loss and waste (FLW) in Canada’s farming, food and beverage industry. Please note that the survey only applies to businesses and organizations operating in Canada. 

Please complete the survey based on the main product that your business produces or handles at an individual location. If you produce or handle more than one product, we would be interested in the results for the second major product too. If that is the case, and you are able to, please complete the survey twice.

If possible, whenever a question pertains to volume, we ask that you use the standard measures of metric tonnes or litres.

All of the information will be treated with the strictest confidentiality. We are not seeking the names of people, businesses or organizations. Only two researchers at VCMI will see individual responses, and all responses will be destroyed once we have aggregated the information.

The survey will take approximately 7 to 8 minutes to complete and will close on Friday, June 29, 2018.

* 1. Please indicate the type of operation for which you are responding. Please choose one answer, based on your PRIMARY operation.
