Food waste is an issue that is growing in severity as our world progresses further into the 21st century. Up to 2 million tonnes of it ends up in landfill, consequently damaging our atmosphere and causing alarming levels of pollution. From farmers and retailers to average consumer habits, we all have a collective duty to take action and preserve the health of this planet for prosperity.

Beginning this fight with a blame-game, however, isn’t going to get us anywhere. This is a global issue demanding global solutions, and we all have our part to play, no matter how minimal we think our actions may be.
