Summary

One third of all food produced globally is wasted. The truth is that Canadians are throwing out more food than they realize – food that could, at one point, have been eaten. And the waste comes with environmental impacts. Each year, food waste in Canada creates some 56.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions. Food in landfills also creates methane gas, which is 25 times more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide.
