The Guardian: "Food retailers must do more to reduce food waste"

Link to The Guardian

"Food waste is a huge problem on both sides of the pond. In America, approximately 40% of food produce is wasted, and much of that is food that is perfectly edible. The United Kingdom also has a food waste problem, and despite government efforts, food waste remains a stubborn issue throughout Britain.

"Together, rising food prices and economic volatility have increased global hunger in rich and poor nations alike. But as the mounting food waste in the US and UK demonstrate, the problem is not of supply, but of distribution and efficiency."
