Turning food waste into fertile soil 6th June, 2016

“Every year 1.3 billion tonnes of food are wasted around the world. This would be enough to feed over three billion people (almost half the world). Only one kilogram of food waste could help to grow between 10-20 kilograms of fresh food by feeding the soil instead of feeding landfills. Until we don’t remember how to appreciate the origin of our food (the soil), our attempts to solve the many social, environmental and economic problems we have will be like trying to hit a Mexican piñata blindfolded,” says Rodrigo Castellanos, Director at ZEA Hungry Goods.
