Singapore and London, and Two Very Different Strategies to Fight Food Waste

I love this video from the BBC which highlights a growing movement in the UK that aims to reduce unnecessary food waste within communities and neighbourhoods. Imagine if Singapore implemented this initiative near to wet markets, where so much produce ends up being disposed of? That said, Singaporeans are taking steps too. I loved this piece in the Straits Times; it was especially heartening to read about what the big supermarkets like NTUC are doing to ensure they're not throwing away produce that customers are quite happy to purchase at reduced prices. They've managed to cut total wastage by nearly 40 per cent, from about 2.2 million kg in 2014 to 1.3 million kg in 2015. Little by little ... but more, please!
