Food waste is an issue that concerns Romania and because of this last year an inter-ministerial group was formed to identify and eliminate food waste.

    Wasting food is a matter which concerns Romania. Globally, this is a problem because a third of what is produced is lost and doesn’t reach the end consumer. At the 29th Regional Conference for Europe, Agriculture Minister, Daniel Constantin said that each of us throw pounds of food. This amount could feed an entire village in Romania for a year. Wasted food is lost when we eat and throw unfinished plates; secondly, food is wasted on the shelf when a product expires; thirdly, there are technological losses in manufacturing. In the next period, Romania will develop a national strategy for reducing losses and waste of food, as the annual losses are higher than 179 kilograms per citizen, according with the European level.
