In a recent UN study, results show over a THIRD of all food produced is wasted.
If all the MEDC (more economically developed countries) put together saved all their wasted food, it would total more than all the Sub-Saharan countries net food production together. So what does this mean? – can we solve wolrd hunger with all the wasted food? Sadly not, as the transport of this produced food would go off by the time it was transported to the 3rd world countries.
The lesson for us here is that countries need to focus on sending the money that is used in producing this wasted food goes directly into funding for LEDC’s food production.
Waste not want not people!
