Food Waste

TOMRA Sorting Food

Each year, 1.3bn tonnes of food is wasted, including 45% of fruit and vegetables and 20% of meat. Just a quarter of this wastage could feed the 795 million chronically hungry people around the world.

Of this waste, more than half (54%) is lost in upstream processes such as agricultural production and post-harvest handling. This totals to a cost of $750 billion per year to the global economy. Addressing food wastage offers significant potential to ease pressures on natural resources and the tightening balance of supply and demand.
