About this book
The world has a food problem, but surprisingly, it isn't just to do with the lack of it. In North America and Europe, we discard between 30-50% of our fresh produce, enough to feed the starving nations six times over, while developing nations throw away 40% of their crops because they don't have the basic infrastructure to store it. But avoiding food waste can easily be achieved.
With shortages, volatile prices and nearly one billion people hungry, the world has a food problem - or thinks it does. Combining frontline investigation with fresh data, this title shows how the way we live now has created a global food crisis - and what we can do to fix it.
