Global Food Wastage
Many places on the planet are currently faced with food shortages and food riots. Meanwhile, other regions throw away enormous amounts of food each year.
Americans waste more than 40 percent of food produced for consumption. A study by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) reports British consumers throw out a third of all food bought, including 1.3 million unopened yogurt containers, 5,500 whole chickens and 440,000 ready meals.
Journalist and author Jonathan Bloom shares his research on the subject of wasted food and ways to remedy the situation on his blog Wasted Food.
