By 2050, the demand for food will double. Yet, about a third of all food produced is wasted each year – four times enough to feed the more than 800 million people who are undernourished. At the same time, 1.9 billion adults are overweight.
Our challenge is to shift consumption patterns, reduce waste and produce enough food without using more scarce and valuable resources.
While over 800 million people go to bed hungry every night, about another 1.9 billion adults are overweight.World Health Organization / Food and Agriculture Organization, United Nations
