Food wastage across the world ..

In the United States, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply. This estimate, based on estimates from USDA's Economic Research Service of 31 percent food loss at the retail and consumer levels, corresponded to approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of food in 2010. - www.usda.gov

Per capita waste by consumers is between 95-115 kg a year in Europe and North America, while consumers in sub-Saharan Africa, south and south-eastern Asia, each throw away only 6-11 kg a year. - www.fao.org


Who are the chronic food wasters of the world ?

US and Europe are the chronic top food wasters of the world.

At the consumer end, people of Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia are most conservativem they are most responsible and waste the least in the world.

Can the world educate the governments and people of US and Europe to not waste food ?
