Stop Food Waste (video)

About 90 million tons of food is wasted annually in Europe – agricultural food waste and fish discards not included. 

About a third of the food for human consumption is wasted globally – around 1.3 billion tons per year, according to FAO. Food waste in industrialized countries is as high as in developing countries:
In developing countries, over 40% of food losses happen after harvest and during processing; In industrialised countries, over 40% occurs at retail and consumer level. Food is wasted throughout the whole food chain — from farmers to consumers — and for various reasons.
