Half of the worlds food wasted

Half of all the world’s food ends up being thrown away, two billion tonnes worth in total a new report claims. The waste is caused by poor infrastructure and storage facilities, over-strict sell-by dates, “get-one-free” offers, and consumer fussiness.I think buy one get one free is the biggest thing that is causing food waste, people  cannot use the food fast enough so it ends up in the bin. Its a shame with so many people not only abroad but also at home going hungry with the lack of food.
