WASTED FOOD ISN’T JUST A SOCIAL OR HUMANITARIAN CONCERN,IT’S AN ENVIRONMENTAL ONE
It has been estimated that if food waste was a country, it would be the third highest emitter of greenhouse gases after the US and china, according to the food and agriculture organization (FAO) of the united nations.
Today more than 1/3 of all the food we produce in the world goes to waste before it’s even sold or eaten. That’s equal to about 1.3 billion tons that either never leave the farm, get lost during distribution or are thrown away in hotels , grocery stores ,warehouses, restaurants, or home kitchens… It could feed the world’s undernourished population almost four times over knowing that still today 1 in every 9 people in the world suffer from under nourishment!
When we waste food, we also waste all the energy and water it takes to grow, harvest ,transport and package it. And if food goes to the landfills and rots, it produces methane, a greenhouse gas even more harmful than carbon dioxide.
About 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions are caused by food waste
Thankfully there are plenty of actions we can take and are effectively taking at the consumer level to make a significant difference From delivering leftovers to those in need to freezing food, shopping smarter and composting .. but what about the food industry’s players who are shamelessly throwing away enormous amount of perfectly good products every day just because they couldn’t sell them on time!? This needs to stop!
