The fight against Food Waste starts in the kitchen

images can not people with a social Conscience untouched: the food in the ton of a large distributor in front of lazy. Do not close the exploit in a different way? Could we not give it to the needy? Or at least the animals feed?

these sensations are moving last week, a "20 minutes"reader, as you spotted in a branch of Migros in Altstetten, a whole bunch of vegetables in the disposal of a ton, still in the plastic packaging. She was "speechless, angry and disappointed" over the actions of Migros, she wrote in the social media. Never would have expected something like this, of all things, from the Migros. Your readers gave you the right, and cut off angry comments in the keyboard.

other handles the topic of to: had Previously spotted a reader-like conditions in a Coop store in Wallisellen. A few days later, another reader discovered, once again, behind the Coop branch in dübendorf: tons of still edible vegetables in the ton. Also you photographed, posted on Facebook and was able to enjoy a viral Post. Thousands of cheering, Coop krebste and donated the food to needy people. Migros instead used the opportunity of the Public to inform that you separate the organic Material from the plastic. From the vegetable Biogas will be gained. So everything in the green area?

anyone Who has ever worked in a restaurant kitchen, you must have a thick skin: Not only are the guests to be a part of your food , which must then be disposed of. Because the restaurant has to do with perishable goods and needs to make sure that the guest is nothing Rotten, ends up, inevitably, always eat in the waste – what inevitably draws the thoughts to the disproportionate amount of waste.

The only Problem is, that the perceived truth is only half the truth. The blind spot is in the budget. Because Yes, Food Waste is a shame, as long as not all people have enough to eat. But here, too, it is worth to yourself to start to show instead of just pointing the Finger at others: According to the statistics, neither the wholesale distributor Turner in Switzerland nor in the pubs of the largest, but only for the 5 percent of wasted food is responsible. The households apply, however, to waste 45 percent of all food. This corresponds to an annual amount of 1'035'000 tons.

The reasons are many, and we know it: We are bad at planning, buy too much, cook too much, cooking, and the vegetables spoil in the fridge. No one likes to throw food away – but no one makes a riot, when a wilted head of Lettuce is thrown on the compost.

Thus, it really is, if a consumer holding, Migros and Coop, surplus food, for example, to the needy, the passing of even more important it would be to make the own Food-Waste into the relationship and ask the question: Must each of the expired yogurt in the trash – or is it still edible? Can I have the leftovers from yesterday, not today still eat? To itself has the largest influence.
