You have to know that
1. One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally. This amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year, worth approximately US$1 trillion.
2. All the food produced, but never eaten would be sufficient to feed two billion people. That’s more than twice the number of undernourished people across the globe.
3. If wasted food were a country, it would be the third-largest producer of carbon dioxide in the world, after the USA and China.
4. Consumers in rich countries waste almost as much food as the entire net food production of sub-Saharan Africa each year.
5. In developing countries, 40 per cent of losses occurs at post-harvest and processing levels. In industrialized countries, more than 40 per cent of losses happen at retail and consumer levels.
