In the last decade, issues relating to Food Waste and Loss (FLW) have rapidly risen up the social and political agenda. Recent estimates suggest that globally one third of food never reaches a human stomach (1.3 billion metric tons), and global food waste is associated with large amounts of greenhouse gas emission (8-10% of global GHGE).
Indeed, the case for reducing food waste has been successfully made in terms of benefits for nutrition, environment, society and economy. There is much nutritionists can do to help reduce food loss and waste.
