Food waste from farm to shelves worth €363 billion

UN's Food and Agriculture Organization warns about the amount of food wasted in the supply chain between farms and stores. The losses reach up to €363 billion, partly due to poor storage infrastructure in farms.
The biggest waste can be seen in South Asia, North America and Europe. In South Asia, 21 percent of the food produced is lost, while in the world it accounts for 14% of all food. New Zealand and Australia score the best with a loss of 5.8%

The largest food losses are mainly due to poor storage infrastructure in farms, according to the FAO. In 2030, the United Nations wants to reduce food waste per person by half.
