Red Sea Mall has signed a cooperation agreement with “Etaam” to launch an initiative aimed at curbing food waste. As part of the agreement, the Etaam association will provide six food saving booths at Red Sea Mall’s food court to eliminate food wasting habits.

The initiative intends to raise public awareness of food waste and its religious, social, humanitarian, health, and environmental impacts; through providing accessible means inside the mall to encourage the public to take an active role in sparing their excess food.

Commenting on the agreement, Mr. Majed Al Ghamlas, Deputy Executive Manager of Etaam Association said, “the amount of waste in Jeddah alone has exceeded 6,000 tons daily, 60% of which consists of food, according to a study published in December 2015.”

This percentage was revealed during the signing ceremony of the “Etaam” partnership agreement with Red Sea Mall.
