Every year, more than 2,3 million tons of food are thrown away in Switzerland alone - be it in the fields, in retail, in gastronomy or at home. More than half of this is avoidable waste.
Food is wasted all along the value chain - from field to fork. And not only the food is wasted, but many, many resources that were consumed in the production of the food, whether water, soil or labor. This waste is bad for the environment. An example: For every kilo of bread not eaten, 1'000 litres of water are wasted. Global food waste is responsible for 8% of greenhouse gas emissions.
