Food Waste vs. Food Loss

by thefulllidvmg

For those of you who care:

And in case you didn’t know the difference between the two:

It makes an important distinction between food loss and food waste. Food losses (the blue portion of the bar) tend to occur due to crumbling infrastructure, harvesting technology, or poorly designed packaging, whereas food waste (the red portion) results from restaurants and people like you and me throwing edible, slightly malformed fruits and vegetables into the trash.
