Fighting Food Waste with Intelligence and Creativity

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

According to estimates from the FAO, one third of all food produced worldwide goes to waste.

Table scraps are only the final step in a long chain of waste that begins in the fields and continues through warehouses and supermarkets. Food waste is ethically unacceptable and alarming from an environmental point of view, because producing the millions of tonnes of food that are thrown away requires massive energy consumption and emits enormous amounts of carbon dioxide. Many creative and intelligent solutions have been proposed to address the problem, but the thing that we can all do is to make a habit of fully valuing food, not treating it as a commodity or something that can be wasted.
