Canada as a Food Waste Monster


 The article by Pete Evans summarizes the findings from the 2014 report created by Value Chain Management International. The report found that over $31 billion dollars worth of food is wasted every year in Canada. However, this does not account for food waste generated in federal institutions including prisons, hospitals and schools. Nor does it account for  other inputs, such as water, land or labour used in the food’s production. As such, the monetary value of food waste is much higher.
