"Jan Kees Vis, the global director for sustainable sourcing development at Unilever, the world’s second-biggest consumer goods company, said that food has become 'too cheap' in the developed world, spurring increased consumer waste.

"Half of the food that is purchased in ... London is never eaten, the executive told a conference.

"Despite the rising cost of meals and snacks in supermarkets, takeaways and restaurants, Mr Vis said that consumers and catering firms do not put enough value on the food that they buy."
