Why take a food waste quiz

Food waste is a serious global problem. Approximately 1/3 of all food produced for human consumption is wasted, amounting to 1.3 billion tonnes per year. That’s enough food to feed the world’s hungry 4 times over. And the ramifications of food waste are far-reaching. Not only does food waste take up valuable resources and contribute to climate change, but it also creates economic and social disparities. Countries that have the infrastructure to collect and process food waste can sell or recycle it, while poorer countries that don’t have the resources to do so often end up sending their food waste to landfills, where it decomposes and releases harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. That’s why it’s so important for businesses to reduce the amount of food they waste. But it’s not just about reducing the amount of food that goes to waste. It’s also about reducing the amount of energy and water that is used in the food production process. That’s where your team comes in. By implementing a food waste reduction plan and educating your employees about the importance of reducing food waste, you can make a significant impact on the amount of food that is wasted each year. Check out our quiz on food waste to learn more about this important issue and what you can do to help.
