Redirect food waste into human consumption
At the moment, one-third of the world’s food is wasted or lost annually, and fruit and veg are the biggest offenders. We focused our research on the upstream part of the food production chain - the closer you get to the raw materials, the larger the impact you can have.
A lot of food has been wasted due to overproduction and strict grading systems before they go to market, which has been used as animal feed or put in the landfill, which in turn contributes about 15 per cent of all greenhouse gases. Redistribution of food waste for human consumption is the best option, but how could we do so?
