That is 1 in 9 people on the planet who are starving or malnourished. Each and every one of them could be sufficiently fed on less than a quarter of the food that is wasted in the USA, UK and Europe each year.
Because we have a globalised food supply system, demand for food in the West can drive up the price of food grown for export in developing countries, as well as displace the growth of crops to feed native populations and drive accelerated degradation of natural habitats. Food waste is really, really bad for the environment.
It takes a land mass larger than China to grow the food each year that is ultimately never eaten — land that has been deforested, species that have been driven to extinction, indigenous populations that have been moved, soil that has been degraded — all to produce food that we then just throw away.
