Paradoxically, UK government policy is attempting to deal with both of these problems simultaneously with plans to #39;boost food production in Britain and reduce its impact on the environment #39;. Is this realistic, or is there an easier way? Calculations based on waste and calorie intake suggest that the UK has access to at least double the food necessary for adequate nutrition. Since farming, retail and eating habits are probably similar throughout the developed world, this implies there is no real food crisis in terms of the amount produced, only in how it is consumed. Therefore, a better strategy must be to focus on reducing food waste rather than growing more. This would minimise the impact on the environment, reduce food expenditure, and achieve better food security with a healthier lifestyle for the population. Using our present methods, significant food waste occurs at all stages of the food industry.
