Each year, one-third of all food the world produces is lost or wasted. Not only does this mean an economic loss, it means that all the natural resources used for growing, processing, packaging, transporting, and marketing that food were also wasted.
And as agriculture and fisheries expand into wild areas, over exploit natural resources, forest, and marine habiats are lost along with their biodiversity.
The solution starts with you. Each producer, supermarket, household, restaurant and nation has a part to play. It will take the commitment of all to reduce food loss and waste so that all the natural resources used to produce food will end up as meals for the world's population instead of as garbage in landfills.
