We're wasting more food than we thought!

Feb 18, 2020 17:10 IST

The world may be wasting more than twice as much food than previously thought, according to a new study. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimated in 2005 that one-third of all the food available for human consumption was wasted. Experts from the Wageningen University and Research indicate that the methodology used by the Food and Agricultural Organisation did not consider consumer behavior related to food waste and was only based on food supply and, therefore, their estimates of consumer food waste may be too low.
