As of 2011, one third of the global food production is lost or wasted annually

As of 2011, 1.3 billion tons of food, about one third of the global food production, are lost or wasted annually. Per capita food waste by consumers in Europe and North-America is estimated at 95-115 kg/year, while this figure in Sub-Saharan Africa and South/Southeast Asia is only 6-11 kg/year. This wreaks significant harm on natural resources, including water.
