    Food Waste - What Can We Do About It?

    Food Waste - What Can We Do About It?

    According to the World Food Programme, a third of all food produced globally is wasted, which is estimated to be between 95 to 115kg of food waste per person annually. So, why do we waste so much food and how can we reduce the amount we waste? Does consumer behaviour need to change or does responsibility rest with food producers and supermarkets?
    Carol Walker speaks to Stephane Leroux from the International Food Waste Coalition and Alexandros Theodoridis co-founder of Boroume, a non-for-profit organisation whose mission is to reduce food waste and to fight malnutrition in Greece.
    Recorded in late 2022.

    The Rising Cost of Food

    The Rising Cost of Food

    Are you wondering what’s behind current rising food costs? According to market research company Kantar, the price of the average shopping basket in the UK has gone up almost £600 a year. It’s not just consumers who are under pressure either; all the way through the chain, purse strings are being tightened, from the farmers feeling the pinch as fertiliser prices go up, to the producers being squeezed by our demand for cheaper products. 
     
    To discuss this, Carole Walker speaks to James Walton from the Institute of Grocery Distribution, UK, Giles Yeo, from the University of Cambridge, and David Bowles of the German Salvation Army. 
    Recorded in late 2022
