ABRUZZO – Every year, 36% of the food produced globally for human consumption is wasted. In more industrialized countries, such as Italy, 78% of food is thrown away by consumers and 22% is waste from the production and transport process. To raise the alarm is the World Organization for International Relations, the World Organization for International Relations founded in 1978.

According to a report by Coldiretti dating back to 2016, food waste in Abruzzo amounts to approximately 27 million euros the year. We also talked about this topic a few days ago on the occasion of the nearby holidays.

Globally, food waste is in fact responsible for 5 billion tons of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere and for water consumption of around 200 billion cubic metres.

“Reducing food losses and waste is essential because 1.5 billion tons of food are wasted every year at a cost of about 900 billion dollars for the global economy” comments Viola Lala, press office of the organization.

According to the agency, 828 million people suffer from severe malnutrition in 55 countries.

The data emerged from the joint report by FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, WFP and WHO (The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, 2022 edition), which also highlights a gender gap: in the world suffering from food insecurity moderate or severe is the 31.9% of women, compared to 27.6% of men.
