Global Food Waste

in 2023

Food waste is a major problem that affects the entire process from farming to trash. Every year, more than 30% of food is lost or thrown away. This is especially concerning because there are so many hungry people in the world. Wasting food isn't just inefficient; it’s a social justice issue.

"Food waste may seem harmless as a biodegradable substance. Yet, when it rots, it releases methane emissions into the atmosphere without proper management. Understanding the consequences of food waste can help us better address the problem

Food waste and Food loss:

what is the difference between them?

There are a few different categories under the umbrella of wasted food.

Food loss

“Food loss” refers to uneaten agricultural, forestry, and fishery products. It occurs during the food production and distribution stage. It is also caused by either a reduction in the quantity or quality of food.

This may occur due to various reasons. For instance, there may be disruptions in the supply chain due to fluctuating supply and demand or spoilage due to adverse weather conditions.

Food waste

“Food waste,” on the other hand, refers to edible food that is intended for human consumption, but instead gets discarded or expires. This can occur in many different situations during preparation, sales, or food service. It includes plate waste, spoiled food, and discarded peels and rinds.

Rich countries waste the most, as do industrialized countries – who often have a significant impact on this food loss and waste.

Global waste: what is the share of food waste?

Over a third of all food produced 2.5 billion tons is lost or wasted each year. One third of this occurs in the food production stage. Boston Consulting Group (BCG) estimates this wasted food is worth $230 billion.
