Zero Waste: India wastes 40% of the food it produces, here's why you should stop now

A morsel of food that you waste, can feed someone who has gone hungry for days. Zero Waste is a concept which encourages the redesigning of resource life cycles so that the products can be reused. 

A recent event organised by The LaLiT, New Delhi, sought to enlighten people about the concept of more recycling and less wasting when it comes to food. According to the United Nations Development Programme, up to 40 per cent of the food produced in India is wasted.

Recycling and reusing food is often considered difficult or is rather an unheard concept. The hotel's chef Nandita changes perception by making a dish out of a raw banana with its peel on as the dish is based on Zero Waste concept. 
London based Chef Justin Horne, famous for his zero-waste vegetarian hotel 'SATIVA' and 'Farm to Table' dining, also pitched in by educating Indian about the ease our country offers when it comes to zero wastage.
