While people are starving in Africa continent, Europe wastes food. Every inhabitant of the European Union annually throws away 179 kilos of food consumption in perfect condition, according to a study by “Beggars without borders.”
The waste has various causes:
-INDUSTRIAL: Over-production, poor packaging of the product (size or shape ill-conceived), poor stock management or inadequate marketing strategies.
-DOMESTIC: Cooked food in perfect condition that children don’t want to eat like spinaches, fish, etc. finishes in the rubbish bin.
“Beggars without borders” claims to analyze in depth the many facets of the problem and take action, especially on posh neighbourhoods where the rate of food wasted is higher, because of the variety of dishes which are prepared only for keeping up appearances and which are not consumed because of dieting.
