Food waste is a global epidemic. Besides the obvious issue of wasted resources, this also poses a problem as the global population continues to rise. The United Nations predicts that the population will reach 9.5 billion by 2075—an increase of approximately three billion from today’s figure. With 870 million people currently battling starvation on a daily basis, programs must be developed to ensure that the number doesn’t increase as the population grows.
