When Ghana reduces food loss by 50% by the year 2025, at all stages of supply chains for the paddy, fruits vegetables and nuts, maize, fish and oilseeds, the impacts for producers vary across sectors; consumers gain from food price reduction, but if they are wage labourers, they might lose income. A more efficient food production system in Ghana will also result in an additional 0.8% increase in its Gross Domestic Product in 2025; a welfare increase equivalent of USD 19 per capita and a slightly higher (29 Kcal per capita) calorie intake. The study was done for the Ministry of Economic Affairs as part of its BO research programme on food waste. The aim of the research was to investigate the medium- to long-term macroeconomic impacts of tackling food losses, with Ghana serving as an informative case.
