WHY FOOD WASTE & HUNGER REDUCTION
Each year about 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted and at the same time about 800 million people do not have access to sufficient and nutritious food (Global FoodBanking Network, 2014). This figure represents roughly one third of food produced for human consumption. Food can be either lost or wasted throughout the supply chain, from initial agricultural production down to final household consumption (FAO, 2011).
9.3 Million Ghanaians with 45% in Accra can’t afford more than $0.81 on food daily. The Cost of Hunger report by the National Development Planning Commission in 2016 estimates that Ghana loses GH¢ 4.6 billion which is equivalent to 6.4% GDP at time when 45% of food goes waste along the food supply chain and 24% of all child mortality cases in Ghana are associated with under nutrition.
