WFD2013 in Italy: Taking on the GROW Method

Imagine… You are at the supermarket buying the food you will use during the week. Six apples, three bananas, 1.5kg of bread, 1.5lt of milk… Then you go home, open the fridge and store four apples, 2 bananas, 1kg of bread, 1 liter of milk, and you throw the rest of the food in the garbage can!

Think this is stupid? Unfortunately, this is what many of us do every day, every week. Globally, approximately one third of food produced is wasted before being consumed. And this is not happening only on the consumers side – but also in the production, distribution and stock process. But we, consumers, can change things and avoid wasting the food we buy!
