AB Live: Economic impact of food wastage

A third of all food produced each year is wasted, equating to 1.3 billion tonnes and $1 trillion worth of food lost. There is enough food for everyone but around 820 million people are going to bed hungry. The UAE aims to reach 50 per cent decrease in food wastage by 2030. But how are they going to achieve that?

What needs to be done by individuals as well as industries in the food supply chain to ensure that food waste is minimalised? 

Lisa Knight and Ananda Shakespeare discuss this issue and explore solutions on this edition of AB Live.
