Every year around 88 million tonnes of food are wasted in the European Union, according to the European Commission. Aside from the environmental impact, this adds up to an estimated 143 billion euros of associated costs. In Catalonia alone, approximately 267,000 tonnes of food goes to waste on an annual basis.
The average Catalan throws away around 35 kilos of food per year, enough to feed another person for a whole month.
