At Grundig, we’ve created Respect Food to highlight and show ways to minimise the huge impact of food waste. Food waste is a drain on resources, on natural habitats for wildlife and on our finances. With every bit of food we throw away, we throw away precious cash that we could use elsewhere.
Here are some facts:
• Each person in Europe or North America wastes about 100kg of food annually
• 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted each year
• $310 billion worth of food is wasted each year in developing countries
• $680 billion worth of food is wasted each year in industrialised countries

So what do these numbers mean? They show the scope of how much money we waste, but they also show how much we can save.
