Nello studio congressuale FAO del 2011 Global food losses and food waste emerge

one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year.
We estimate that the per capita food waste by consumers in Europe and North-America is 95-115 kg/year, while this figure in Sub-Saharan Africa and South/Southeast Asia is only 6-11 kg/year
