75 billion cubic meter of water is used each year to produce fruits and vegetables that are lost. Fruit and vegetable losses mean that 912 trillion kilocalories and micronutrients never make it to consumer.
715 million hectares of land go to waste due to losses in meat and animal products. The greenhouse gas emissions linked with food loss are equal to roughly 1.5 gigatonnes of CO2. This does not even include the greenhouse gases released by wasted food that rots in landfills of the cost of all the food wasted at retail and consumer level worldwide.
For the people. For the planet.
