Andreas Wil Gerdes on Inside Ideas

Our relationship with food must change

The Malta based German entrepreneur Andreas Wil Gerdes is my guest on today’s Inside Ideas.

After selling his first business at the age of 20, Andreas worked out of a garage and began building what would become part of Orange PLC, in a journey that has seen him become a leading figure at the forefront of the global mobile telecoms revolution for over 25 years.

Andreas is also passionate about food and ensuring it is better managed. For him, mothers are the agents of change best positioned to spearhead a healthy food revolution. On Inside Ideas he tells me that in Europe it should be criminal to throw away food, because it isn’t a shortage of food that is the problem, he explains, rather the poor management of it.
