En route from the farm to the dining table, more than half of the world's food ends up in the dump — most before it even reaches consumers. European households throw away 100 billion Euros worth of food each year, enough to feed the world's hungry twice. Why are ever-greater quantities being destroyed? We seek explanations: from supermarket staff and managers, to bakers, wholesale market inspectors, welfare recipients, ministers, farmers and EU bureaucrats. We all contribute to this system that disastrously impacts the global climate.
