Food waste facts

 

 

 

Global food waste

The world's population has reached 7 billion, of which 925 million are starving. It is estimated that more than 30% of the world's food production ends up as garbage. That puts the annual food waste at a staggering 1,3 billion tons - or enough to feed 3 billion people.

Food, famine and food waste

By 2050 the world population will reach 9 billion. By then, food production must be increased by 70% to meet the demand. Reducing food waste should be among the main focus areas.

Food waste in starving Africa
Inefficient processing and drying, poor storage and insufficient infrastructure are instrumental factors in food waste in Africa. In Sub-Saharan Africa post harvest food losses are estimated to be worth US $ 4 billion per year - or enough to feed at least 48 million people.
