Nevertheless a large quantity of still edible food is disposed of during all stages of production, processing, distribution and usage. A part is still suitable for human consumption such as surpluses from agriculture, processing and trade, surplus cooked meals from hospitality sector or food which is disposed of with unopened packaging or only partly used food (e.g. half loaf of bread) at household level. In addition to the social and ethical issues as well as economic value involved in the wastage of edible food, considerable efforts are required in the correct handling of food residues in waste management. A huge amount of food waste is directly landfilled worldwide and converted into methane due to the conditions present. Thus, high quality food produced through use of various resources in compliance with strict legal restrictions continues to contribute towards global climate change even at the end of life.
