Policy Brief: Food Waste

Tackling food loss and waste could make a significant contribution to combating hunger and increasing farm incomes where it is needed most. One-third of all food produced for human consumption worldwide is lost or wasted. That translates into 1.3 billion tonnes, worth nearly one trillion US dollars. The quantity of food thrown out in industrialised countries is the same as the entire amount produced in sub-Saharan Africa. Added to this is the waste of natural resources used to produce food that is subsequently lost or discarded. The Policy Brief 'Going to waste - missed opportunities in the battle to improve food security' is now available for download.
