Food waste in local restaurants
A large quantity of food in restaurants is wasted every day. The problem occurs when there is a lack of appropriate planning, overproduction and unstable markets and when the raw materials are not stored properly. The consequences and effects of food waste are plenty and dangerous. Wasted food is not just a social humanitarian concern, it is also an environmental one. When restaurants waste food they also waste all the energy and water it’s needed to grow, harvest, transport and package it. Moreover, there are also environmental causes like the production of methane that is created by wasted food in landfills. Finally, the economy is affected as well since high food waste causes an increase in demand for raw materials which leads to the increase of the prices of food stocks. In Limassol, there is no strategy for restaurants to deal with food waste.
