PATA launches youth component of food waste campaign, 'BUFFET for Youth'

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is pleased to announce the launch of the “BUFFET for Youth”. The announcement was made yesterday by PATA Young Tourism Professional (YTP) Ambassador, Ms JC Wong, and PATA Sustainability and Social Responsibility Associate, Ms. Veronika Forstmeier, at the Asia Pacific Youth & Sustainable Tourism Workshop held today at the UN Building in Bangkok, Thailand.


The “BUFFET for Youth” is a challenge targeted at the next generation of tourism leaders that builds on the BUFFET Initiative – a PATA food waste campaign, and is open to PATA YTP student members, PATA Student Chapter members and students enrolled in an educational institution that is a PATA International member. The challenge is focused on the crossroads of where young tourism students and the issue of food waste meet to create a future of sustainable production and consumption.


PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy said, “It was very fitting for us to launch the challenge in the context of yesterday’s workshop, which aimed to empower the next generation of leaders in tourism and hospitality. By giving them the resources, confidence, and experience in the subject of food waste reduction and prevention, we are instilling the value of food and providing the appropriate tools that can help make an immediate and tangible impact in our industry and our region.”
