Increasing food production levels to feed an ever-growing global population has also inevitably created a large and ever-growing amount of food waste. The disposal of increasingly larger amounts of food waste has a serious impact on the environment. In recent years, there has been significant interest in waste valorization strategies for converting and managing food waste by developing new sustainable manufacturing processes. The present work summarizes current global waste valorization strategies and the various physical, physicochemical and biological processes that can be used to manufacture valorized products. While future perspectives are also discussed.
