The Global Food Crisis Report 2022 clearly emphasized the scale of the food security problem, documenting that in 2021, 828 million people worldwide were undernourished and 193 million were acutely hungry.

At the same time, many countries have a problem with food waste, which experts say needs to be addressed immediately, SSPDaily writes.

Countries that waste the most food China: 91.6 million tons of household food waste per year

China throws away the most food per household, almost 6% of total production. As the country's middle class grows, the demand for various foods is increasing, often leading to over-purchases and wastage.

India: 68.7 million tons of household food waste per year

India faces serious food wastage issues arising from inefficiencies throughout the food supply chain. The country's per capita food loss is 50 kg (68.7 million per year), which is 40% of total food production.

Nigeria: 37.94 million tons of household food waste per year

Nigeria's presence in the top five countries that waste food the most is not surprising. According to the data, levels of household food waste are almost the same in high-income, upper-middle-income, and lower-middle-income countries. With the average per capita household waste in sub-Saharan Africa at 108 kg, compared to 74 kg in the rest of the world, Nigeria is among the top three countries that waste the most food.

Indonesia: 20.93 million tons of household food waste per year

According to reports, food loss in Indonesia costs the country $13-32 billion a year, which is almost 2% of the country's GDP. Per capita food waste in Indonesia amounts to about 77 kg.

US DOLLARS: 19.3 million tons of household food waste per year

According to Feeding America, 40% of all food in the United States is wasted, amounting to a staggering $408 billion a year. This waste amounts to nearly 130 billion meals and is influenced by various factors in the food supply chain.
