FOOD WASTAGE IN INDIA:

FOOD WASTAGE IN INDIA Presented By Group C

INTRODUCTION:

INTRODUCTION Food waste or food loss is food that is discarded or lost uneaten. As of 2011, 1.3 billion tons of food, about one third of the global food production, are lost or wasted annually. Loss and wastage occurs on all steps in the food supply chain.

PowerPoint Presentation:

In low-income countries most loss occurs during production, while in developed countries much food – about 100 kilograms (220 lb) per person and year – is wasted at the consumption stage.

FOOD RESCUE :

FOOD RESCUE Food rescue , also called food recovery, is the practice of safely retrieving edible food that would otherwise go to waste, and distributing it to those in need. The recovered food is edible, but often not saleable. Products that are at or past their “sell by” dates or are imperfect in any way – a bruised apple or day-old bread – are donated by grocery stores, food vendors, restaurants, and farmers markets.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Other times, the food is unblemished, but restaurants may have made or ordered too much, or may have edible pieces of food (such as scraps of fish or meat) that are byproducts of process of preparing foods to cook and serve. In addition, food manufacturers may donate product that marginally fails quality control or that has become short-dated.

MALNUTRITION IN INDIA DUE TO FOOD WASTAGE:

MALNUTRITION IN INDIA DUE TO FOOD WASTAGE The World Bank estimates that India is ranked 2nd in the world of the number of children suffering from malnutrition, after Bangladesh (in 1998), where 47% of the children exhibit a degree of malnutrition.

PowerPoint Presentation:

India is one of the fastest growing countries in terms of population and economics, sitting at a population of 1,139.96 million (2009) and growing at 10–14% annually (from 2001–2007). India's Gross Domestic Product growth was 9.0% from 2007 to 2008; since Independence in 1947, its economic status has been classified as a low-income country with majority of the population at or below the poverty line.

How much food items do Indians waste every year?:

How much food items do Indians waste every year? Well, it is indeed a startling figure. A fresh estimate from the ministry of food processing says a whopping Rs 58,000 crore (Rs 580 billion) worth of agriculture food items get wasted in the country every year.

WASTE MANAGEMENT:

WASTE MANAGEMENT Waste management is the collection, transport, processing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment. Waste management is a distinct practice from resource recovery which focuses on delaying the rate of consumption of natural resources. The management of wastes treats all materials as a single class

Management for non-hazardous waste residential and institutional waste in metropolitan areas is usually the responsibility of local governmentauthorities, while management for non-hazardous commercial and industrial waste is usually the responsibility of the generator.

7 useful methods for preventing food wastage in India :

7 useful methods for preventing food wastage in India

PowerPoint Presentation:

India is a poor country where millions of people do not get enough food to eat. Hence, we should never waste food. To prevent wastage of food, we should take the following steps:

PowerPoint Presentation:

Control of weeds and harmful insects in fields would increase yield of food grains, fruits and vegetables.

PowerPoint Presentation:

2. Proper storage of food grains (cereals) and fruits and vegetables is essential to protect them from damage due to abiotic factors like temperature and humidity and biotic factors like rodents, birds, insects and microbes.

PowerPoint Presentation:

3. We should keep the nutritive value and the comparative cost of food articles in mind while buying them.

PowerPoint Presentation:

4. We should buy only that much quantity of food which can either be consumed or kept safely at home.

PowerPoint Presentation:

5. We should not waste food at social and religious functions.

PowerPoint Presentation:

6. We should avoid excessive refining and processing of food.

PowerPoint Presentation:

7. We should avoid undesirable cooking practices like: a) Fruits and vegetables should not be washed after cutting or peeling as this may lead to washing away of many water-soluble vitamins. b) Food should not be cooked in open pans. c) Pressure cooker should be used for cooking. d) Excessive use of baking soda should be avoided as it destroys vitamin C and vitamin B complex. Repeated washing of pulses should be avoided

Turning food waste into cooking gas :

Turning food waste into cooking gas BIOTECH, India Getting rid of waste, both food and human, is essential to hygiene. But waste is also a cost-effective and sustainable source of fuel. The evidence? Well, since 2004 BIOTECH has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in Kerala, Southern India and saved several thousand tones per year of CO2 simply by getting rid of waste.

PowerPoint Presentation:

BIOTECH has calculated that the average family can pay back the cost of the digester in three years. They also facilitate the government subsidies which may cover part of the installation costs. By 2009 they had installed 16,000 plants in total.

PowerPoint Presentation:

BIOTECH is a burgeoning organization. It has tripled in size since 2006 and now employs over 140 people with a wider network of installers. It continues to refine and expand the digester model and to spread the word across the country.
