Cutting back on food wastage

Approximately 795 million people globally do not get enough nourishment to help them live a healthy life, according to the World Food Programme.

Yet the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that 1.3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted every year.
