Waste Not,Want not

Food wastage is a critical concern. Anestimated one-third of all food produced today is either lost in the supply chain or wasted outright, and the ramifcations for the planet are cumulatively destructive. While consumers’ over-purchasinghabits are partly to blame, growers and manufacturers share an equal burden. Poor transport and storage of food items contribute to food wastage. Perhaps an even more glaring issue is the amount of edible and otherwise useful plant material that gets thrown out by growers and processors every day. Diverting undesirable plant parts to compost can be a positive business practice. Other approaches, however, may let frms turn a proft from plant and other waste.
