20 Food Waste Facts

  • Roughly one-third of the world's food produced, around 1.3 billion tons, is wasted globally each year [Earth.Org].
  • This food waste is estimated to cost the global economy close to $940 billion annually [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • Food waste contributes significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for up to 10% of global emissions [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  •  Shockingly, wasting food generates more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire aviation industry combined [Earth.Org].
  • If food waste were a country, it would be the third biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, following the US and China [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • Food rotting in landfills releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas 28 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, further accelerating climate change [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • Eliminating food waste globally would save an estimated 4.4 million tonnes of CO2 a year, equivalent to taking one in four cars off the road [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • While millions go hungry, this food waste paradox persists, with 793 million people around the world facing undernourishment [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • If just one-quarter of the food currently wasted globally could be saved, it would be enough to feed 870 million hungry people [Earth.Org].
  • Fruit and vegetables are particularly susceptible to waste, with nearly half of all produce grown globally never being eaten [OzHarvest Sustainability].
  • Wasting food also squanders the precious resources used to produce it. Food waste is responsible for using up to 21% of the world's freshwater resources [Earth.Org].
  • Additionally, food waste consumes 19% of global fertilizers, 18% of cropland, and occupies 21% of landfill space [Earth.Org].
  • The environmental impact of food waste extends beyond resource depletion. The water used to produce wasted food could be enough for 9 billion people to drink 200 liters of water daily [The World Counts].
  • Food waste occurs at every stage of the food supply chain, from production and processing to distribution and consumption [The World Counts].
  • In developed countries, food waste at the consumer level is a major concern, with consumers in these regions discarding as much food as the entire sub-Saharan African production [The World Counts].
  • In contrast, food waste in developing countries often happens earlier in the supply chain, during agricultural production and storage due to poor infrastructure and limited resources [The World Counts].
  • Unexpectedly, even slight changes in consumer behavior can significantly impact food waste reduction. For example, proper food storage techniques can drastically extend the shelf life of many products [Earth.Org].
  • Technological advancements offer promising solutions for food waste reduction, such as improved food processing and preservation techniques [Earth.Org].
  • Educating consumers about food waste and promoting sustainable food practices are crucial steps in tackling this global issue [Earth.Org].
  • By working together, individuals, businesses, and governments can create a more sustainable food system that reduces waste and ensures everyone has access to the food they need.
