The British government has that a third of the food the world is wasted. It said the high level of food waste in the UK is "unacceptable". Over 7 million tons of food is in the UK every year. A British politician, Neil Parish, said: "One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally." The government said there many solutions to the problem of food waste. First, schools could children's awareness of food waste from a young age. Secondly, supermarkets could vegetables that are away because they the "wrong" shape. Finally, "sell-by" dates, "use-by" dates and "best before" labels need to . Perfectly good food is away because of these labels.
Neil Parish the fact that so much food is thrown away is both socially and environmentally unacceptable. He said: "Socially, it is a scandal that people are hungry and food banks when so much produce is wasted." He added that: "Environmentally, it is a disaster, because energy and resources are wasted in production, only for the food to up rotting in landfills where it methane - a potent climate-changing gas." He on supermarkets to by selling vegetables that have a funny shape. He said: "It’s ridiculous that perfectly good vegetables are wasted simply because they're a funny shape." He said these vegetables, "don’t or any different".
