Waste – Uncovering the Global Food Scandal

Waste:  Uncovering the Global Food Scandal by Tristram Stuart,  Penguin €11

Are we profligate with food?   Tristram Stuart thinks so.  In Britain and the US average food costs are approximately 10% of a household’s disposable income.  In Pakistan it is 75%.

A result of this wastefulness, according to Stuart, is that the environmental impact of producing all this food that we don’t eat is significant – it takes 8.3 million hectares of agricultural land to produce just the meat and dairy products wasted in UK households and by consumers, retailers and food services in the US  – This land amounts to seven times the amount of land deforested in Brazil in the past year.
