Food loss and waste and the right to adequate food: Making the connection

The report begins by reviewing the evidence to date focussing on the magnitude and geographical distribution of food losses. In the next sections the role of energy in post-harvest losses is discussed. Thereafter, the main entry points within the food value chain where lack of access to energy is the dominant factor influencing food losses is discussed. This report outlines low cost and off-grid post-harvest cooling and processing technologies that can be made available in developing countries.

Nowadays it is generally recognized that the post World War II industrial agriculture and food in Western countries was succesful with regard to profit, but unsuccesful with respect to people and planet. The underlying structure was a linear economy and a poor interpretation of the sustainability paradigm. All efforts aimed at increasing production volumes and profits. The circular economy tries to reach a more efficient use of natural resources and less waste. In itself this is good, it possibly will pay attention to the planet, but people remain suffering.
