What is Food waste?
Food waste is the discarded food that’s not used for consumption. The rise of food waste is closely linked to globalization. The fact that we can get mangoes from India means that along the way during transportation, food got stale or bruised and then declared not good for consumption so it gets discarded. More often than not, this food is fit for consumption but either does not look appetizing or was meant to be consumed the day it was made but it wasn’t or it is leftovers from customers in the case of eatery places.
In the UK households throw out an estimated 4.5 million tons of food waste per year and businesses throw out an estimated 1.5 million tons of food waste. These sound like huge numbers but we have made big strides in food waste management so far and have significantly reduced greenhouse gasses associated with food waste.

After collection, comes the disposal stage.

The food waste is burnt at high temperatures in an enclosed space to control the release of harmful gasses to the atmosphere.
Most people just dump their food in landfills because it is biodegradable. However, there are dangers associated with this such as the release of methane into the atmosphere. Methane gas is way more dangerous than carbon dioxide and when food is composting, it releases a lot of it.
