Gen Lab and H&H International Foundation jointly organised a roundtable discussion titled ‘Health and Food Waste Management’ at the Jatiya Press Club recently focused on sustainable development goals.

In the discussion, the speakers said a huge amount of food is being wasted everyday and many people are falling ill due to their unhealthy food habits. On the other hand, specific segments of the society routinely suffer from hazardous food intake and lack of proper nutrition.

They said the aforementioned issue is heightened during the month of Ramadan when many people experience sickness due to consumption of excessive and unhealthy food.

Executive Director of Gen Lab Ratul Dev and Founder of H&H International Foundation M Shafaq Hussain along with Lawmaker from Gaibandha - 1 Barrister Shameem Haider Patwary, former election commissioner and retired Brig Gen Dr M Sakhawat Hossain and media personality Shykh Seraj were present at the event.

Besides, Public Health expert Dr Anupam Hossain, Head of Bangladesh Tourism Corporation's Food and Beverage Productions Jahida Begum, Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industries member Salauddin Yusuf, among others, delivered speeches.
