But things aren’t all that simple! As you will see if you read the whole article – “… restaurants waste 15 percent and consumers 67 percent” of food in France and it is probably a similar situation in this country. We can blame the supermarkets and the food chains be we, the consumers, need to change our habits as well and waste less food.

How might we start this change in ourselves?
