Food Waste in India

21 Nov, 2012


·            Inadequate food storage is causing a huge problem of food wastage in parts of India.
·            Around a third of all food produced in India is wasted every year.


·            This translates to millions of tons of wasted food each year.
·            A lot of food is regularly wasted throughout the supply chain, from the farms to people’s homes.
·            About half of the stocks resellers buy from the wholesale market is spoiled before they reach the store, particularly during the monsoon season when it is exposed to the rain.
