This subject came up. There were a few butchers in camp, and a few guys who worked at supermarkets in the past.
We were talking about wasted food and I proudly put out I figured about 40% of food was tossed.
I was corrected I was close but the actual figure is around 60%. And that's only by the supermarkets. Not counting people who bought the food.
That's disgusting. I would now wager at least 70% of all food ends up in landfills, and that's a low estimate.
