Less food waste – better Environment – more money in your pocket


22% cent of the food purchased weekly ends up in the solid waste
stream. – GRTU, Green MT
Ltd and other interested parties, including supermarkets, hotels and restaurants,
local councils, waste disposal companies, the government and the Church's
environment commission is a working group nominated by Environment Minister,
Hon Leo Brincat with the aim to present 
recommendations to reduce food waste.

During a
launch held earlier on this week, Hon Leo Brincat, expressed his satisfaction
over the fact that the working group consists of representatives coming from
various sectors and that every person forming part of the group has accepted to
work together with the aim of reducing food waste.

It
transpires that the biggest source of food waste is households, and the best
solution for  waste to be reduced is that
people will have to plan their purchases according to their meals so that they
use only the portions required. It was also suggested that products will be
checked prior to their expiry date so that they will not be thrown away.

The
Committee will be Chaired by Ms  Lisa
Cassar Shaw, and it is expected to issue 
a report within two months.
