Global Food Wastage

According to FAO

1/3 of food produced for human consumption is wasted globally which amounts to 1.3 billion tonnes every year. It is established that food is wasted throughout the supply chain from production to food consumption through;
Poor management
Poor Storage Facilities
Movements from the farm to the market

Food wastage in East Africa.

As much as food spoilage is a global problem, it is more prevalent in Africa. Lack of proper post-harvest facilities and markets means that 30% of food is wasted before it is consumed.
80% of food that is consumed in urban areas is produced by rural farmers. Farmers and consumers have been taken hostage by middlemen who currently controls food value chain. The farmers who have a ready crop have to wait for middlemen to purchase their produce while consumers have to rely on middlemen to deliver the same to their suppliers/stores in urban areas.
