• According to the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) grocery stores waste 10% of their food products
  • According to ‘First Research’, grocery stores sell three major types of products:
        • perishable foods: 50% of revenue
        • nonperishable foods: 30% of revenue
        • non-food items: 20% of revenue
  • According to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) In Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Suriname and Uruguay, food losses at the retail level would be enough for each of these countries to feed enough people to achieve Goal 1 of the Millennium Development Goals, reducing by half the percentage of the undernourished in their populations.
