The head of a food campaign group has said that most of the world's food waste happens courtesy of food companies.
Feeding the 5000's founder Tristram Stuart said:
The message peddled by supermarkets and their representatives, and indeed some international institutions, that in rich countries most food waste comes from consumers, is a distortion of the facts.
The reality is that the supply chain is the main source of preventable food waste.
A third of the world's food is wasted and most of this happens courtesy of food companies. Retailers can use their power to help farmers, manufacturers and consumers to reduce waste from farm to fork.
