Tristram Stuart delves into the shocking data of wasted food, calling for a more responsible use of global resources. Thank you for taking your time to submit your error report.

With shortages, volatile prices and nearly one billion people hungry, the world has a food problem - or thinks it does. Farmers, manufacturers, supermarkets and consumers in North America and Europe discard up to half of their food - enough to feed all the world's hungry at least three times over. Forests are destroyed and nearly one tenth of the West's greenhouse gas emissions are released growing food that will never be eaten. While affluent nations throw away food through neglect, in the developing world crops rot because farmers lack the means to process, store and transport them to market. But there could be surprisingly painless remedies for what has become one of the world's most pressing environmental and social problems. Travelling from Yorkshire to China, from Pakistan to Japan, and introducing us to foraging pigs, potato farmers, freegans and food industry directors, Stuart encounters grotesque examples of profligacy, but also inspiring innovations and ways of making the most of what we have. Combining front-line investigation with startling new data, "Waste" shows how the way we live now has created a global food crisis - and what we can do to fix it.

I had a student interested in writing a research report about food waste and my overseas university's library had no information. My student needed to use a book source, so I researched this on Amazon before I bought it. It is well-written and comprehensive, with detailed references. My student learned a lot and so have I. Highly recommended.

In "Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal," Tristram Stuart reveals the ugly and massive scale of the food waste problem, along with the "connectedness" of the global food system and the negative impact of the wasteful habits of rich countries on less developed countries and the environment.

Stuart provides a reality check and shows that we need to think differently about our food; noting that we produce more than enough food now - and that we are capable of feeding all of the hungry people in the world if we stop wasting food and use those resources effectively.

He educates us on the severity of the problem throughout the food chain, including issues at the supermarket level (where overstocking and displays of "perfect" produce lead to substantial waste) as well as issues at the manufacturing level, where that same quest for perfection - along with overproduction and minimal costs associated with environmental externalities - leads to additional waste.

He also covers many other key themes including the extent of household waste, the waste resulting from confusion over sell-by dates, the alarming waste in our fisheries, the value of using all parts of animals, and the need for infrastructure investment to reduce losses from spoilage in less developed areas where hunger is already a severe problem.

Stuart effectively makes the link to climate change and shows that our culture of waste puts enormous pressure on the environment; as we seek to grow more and more food we consume more and more land, deplete finite resources, and pollute our air and water. He notes that we all need to look not only at wasted food but to all of the resources that went into producing it, the resources consumed in the discard process, and the ensuing environmental harm as wasted food decomposes in landfills.

Stuart shows us that as consumers, we have the power to influence retailers and hence drive change through the supply chain. We become more aware that we have a social responsibility to make a concerted effort to reduce our food waste and make good use of those resources when nearly one billion individuals on the planet are hungry. Stuart provides awareness of the need for change, and notes that we would be well advised to reflect on lessons in frugality from our past (such as the World War II era), and from specific cultures (like the Uighurs).

In sum, when it comes to food waste and the larger food system that drives it, we need a serious "rethink" - and Stuart lays the groundwork beautifully to lead us down that path. "Waste" is an outstanding work; a great read for those interested in the nine billion by 2050 problem and the potential for reductions in food waste to help mitigate it. It is a call to everyone - especially to those in rich countries - that wasting 30-50% of food produced is indeed a "scandal" of global proportions and is not sustainable.

Easily one of my all-time favorite eye-opening books. I highly recommend this book to those in the food industry, who care about global supply chain, food supply/shortages and/or who value an understanding of "what went wrong" in our global food system. I also highly recommend Stuffed and Starved, a longer read, but relevant topic matter and another fantastic book.

Very comprehensive, very well researched, furthermore, the author walks the talk- he is successfully using waste for everyday living, not just as a subject for a lively, vivid book. It is especially relevant for all us "civilized" societies and offers a perfect philosophical perspective on the subject: waste is the other side of the coin in our lives which we often prefer to ignore. Nothing is more expensive than a free lunch.

"Waste" provide good insight into the problems with food waste and some suggestions for mimimizing the problems. If more people were aware of the magnitude of food waste, each of us would do something to minimize the waste and the negative impact that waste has on the environment.

Mr. Stuart has certainly a way of writing that positively brings home the importance of a major issue that is kept discreetly behind the scenes. I would hope that some of the people who have a say and can truly change things would get more involved in the solutions rather than contributing to the continuing problem.

Eye opening. More aware of my own wastefulness now and taking actions to correct that.
It was a great book and covered every aspect of food waste. Really helps you look at food and waste and grocery shopping differently. There were a lot of numbers though and that made it difficult to keep things straight sometimes. Good book overall
