Food Waste

Food Waste

In a world where many people are hungry and malnourished, an estimated one-third of all food is lost or wasted! 

Food waste is a waste of resources

The loss of food that could be eaten by people is a waste of resources used for growing food, including water, land, energy, labour, equipment, fuel, seed, fertilizer etc. Lost food that decomposed also contributes to global warming and climate change.

Where food is wasted

In developing countries, most of the food is lost in the fields and getting food to market. Often developing countries don’t have access to crop production products, adequate storage and transportation and/or lack the education and skills to improve farming practices.

In countries like Canada, the waste occurs more at the consumer level. In our quest for the perfect food, excessive portions at restaurants and throwing out leftovers and food past the “best before” date - we waste between 95 – 115 kg food per year (per capita)!
