The Effects of Food Waste

UK-based organization, The Institute of Mechanical Engineers, posted a report stating that approximately 2 billion pounds of food produced annually goes to waste.

According to Kevin Payne, senior director of marketing at Intelleflex, some of those causes include:

  • Poor harvesting, storage and transportation methods
  • Plain old consumer waste (people buy too much and throw it out)
  • Overly conservative and misunderstood “sell-by” dates, driven mostly by grocers looking to avoid legal actions to reduce risk due to poor food quality
