Food waste is a significant problem in restaurants across the world, with an alarming amount of food being thrown away every day. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, one-third of all food produced globally is wasted. In the United States alone, restaurants generate an estimated 22 to 33 billion pounds of food waste per year. This immense waste not only wreaks havoc on the environment but also creates significant economic losses, with millions of dollars squandered each year. Consequently, it’s essential for restaurants to adopt measures to minimize food waste and champion sustainable practices.Take our Food Waste Quiz to find out if you’re trash or a compostable comrade.
