Supermarkets wage war on food waste, aiming to halve it by 2030

What's Going On Here?
WRAP, a UK charity which helps organisations become more resource-efficient, have launched a new Food Waste Reduction Roadmap, which details ways in which 89 business signatories and their consumers can reduce food waste.
UK supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Aldi have pledged to halve their wasted food by 2030.
Let's Look at Some Stats
Each year we waste 1.6bn tonnes of food - about a third (yes, a THIRD!) of the food produced globally.
If we don’t curb this careless habit, by 2030 that will increase to 2.1bn tonnes, the equivalent of 66 tonnes per second.
Food Waste is a Climate Disaster
This means that if food waste were a country, it would come third after the US and China in terms of its global warming impact.
Don't over buy food, and eat your leftovers. Simples.
