On Food Waste

  • One-third of food produced globally is lost or wasted
  • As a global society we waste more than 30% of the calories produced every year. Further
  • Each year 70 to 80 billion pounds of food is thrown away in the U.S. only, that's more than 250 pounds per person.
  • Twenty to 30 percent of all food grown, processed and transported is never consumed.
  • Socially, there is a growing number of people who do not know when they may have their next meal,
  • With one in four children in the U.S. now considered "food insecure.
  • In a world where one billion people go hungry every day,

One of the biggest opportunities we have in the food industry is to better educate ourselves and consumers on the vast amount of food wasted each year.
