Up to 40 percent of the food in the United States is never eaten.
We also offer practical solutions to address the vast amount of food wasted in the restaurant, retail, and institutional food service sectors.
The amount of the food we throw out that ends up in landfills, where it emits methane and contributes to climate change

Millions of tonnes of food are thrown away every year and much of this waste is simply misunderstood food. It happens in restaurants, cafeterias, supermarkets and at home, but people can and will eat anything. It will reduce our own footprint and help create the demand that businesses and politicians need to contain it, according to a new study.
We all know that reducing food waste can save us $8 for every dollar we invest, can help drive down food prices by reducing demand, reducing pressure on local ecosystems, providing modern marketing opportunities, and contributing to our brand image. If you hate the idea of waste, but love the ideas of creative cuisine, join the counterculture by ending food waste.
Before we talk about exactly how we can start reducing food waste, we should talk a little more about why this should be a fundamental concern for food suppliers. According to the EPA, 80% of unconsumed food ended up in the trash in 2014, meaning that consumers will only pay more attention to how restaurants interact with their environment by 2020. This means that food grown, processed or transported within the US is not eaten. Until that gap is closed, restaurant owners and restaurateurs will have to bear the burden.
The National Pact against Food Waste in France comprises eleven measures to reduce food waste by half by 2025. In addition to food donation, many companies claim they can prevent food waste by selling - too - wasted products at discounted prices. According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the European Union , Hungarian consumers account for 68% of all food wasted.
In the United States, food waste is estimated at 30 to 40 percent of food supply, and in the Netherlands, an estimated 70 percent of all food produced is lost or thrown away. These figures are based on data from the US Department of Agriculture and the Food and Agriculture Organisation .
Food waste is food that could feed families in need, but is too expensive to be dumped in urban landfills. Food waste is one of the main sources of food waste in the United States and the Netherlands, as well as in many other countries.
In addition, water, energy and labour used to produce the wasted food could be used for other purposes, such as food storage, food processing or food for animals or livestock.
The food thrown away must end up somewhere, and the best way to reduce the amount of food waste that is sent to landfills is to turn the waste into animal feed that can be used to feed local and industrial farms for their livestock. Although there is no official data on the number of tonnes of food waste produced in the United States, we produce one tonne of it every year. Innovative food recycling projects - Waste have been launched in recent years to reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in local or regional landfills.
Food waste occurs in a variety of forms, such as food packaging, packaging materials, food waste and food waste from restaurants.
Food waste is food that is either deliberately discarded during the retail consumption phase or deliberately discarded as a by-product of the food processing process, such as packaging, packaging materials and food waste from restaurants. Food loss occurs before food reaches the consumer for a variety of reasons, including lack of proper storage, processing, disposal and disposal of food, as well as the use of pesticides, fertilisers, pesticides and other chemicals.
Food waste is a component of food loss, and diverted food, including animal feed, compost, recovery and bioenergy, is counted as food loss and waste. The point at which food in the food supply chain is fit for human consumption is the point at which it is either too late to be fit For example, if the recovered food is used as input for production, such as animal feed, fertiliser or biomass, it may be flawed because it has already been wasted, or it may have been spoiled or expired, mainly due to its disposal.
If the cost of the recovered food is more than 10% of its original value, as in the case of animal feed, then the economic loss is an economic loss.
In the US, an estimated 25% of our freshwater consumption is wasted on producing food that is never eaten, and land and labor are spent on feeding crops that are never fed to humans. When animals are unnecessarily reared or slaughtered, when food is thrown away or discarded, when land, labour or agricultural labour is spent on feeding a plant that never feeds humans, when chemicals are sprayed for free, when animals are reared unnecessarily. This represents an opportunity for businesses and consumers to prevent food from being wasted, but efforts often involve finding ways to divert food from people who do not want it to people who do so so so that it can be used more sustainably, such as in food production for food security.
