3 Interesting Tips to Tackle Food Waste

We can all take action by changing the way we shop, cook and plan our meals to avoid wasting food, money and resources.

  • Freeze food ahead of date - frozen fruit can be a great addition to smoothies!
  • Share your surplus food with others. Our nature as social beings can play a role in the solution.
  • What can no longer be reused is good for composting, a natural process where microorganisms biodegrade food waste, turning it into a dark, earthy, nutrient-rich material that promotes healthy soil.

Valuable fact:

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that 6% of global food losses occur in Latin America and the Caribbean, and each year the region loses or wastes about 15% of its available food.

The food lost in the region could feed more than 30 million people (64% of those suffering from hunger in the region).
