The specific problem EasyMeals is trying to address
An estimated 25 percent of the world’s food calories and up to 50 percent of total food weight are lost or wasted before they can be consumed. In rich countries most of that waste occurs in homes, restaurants, or supermarkets.
EasyMeals is really looking to solve food waste problems in developed democracies that have laws surrounding food donations from grocery stores or in nations that would be open to such laws.
Although this may seem like a very specific aspect of the problem, even in just one country, America, 141 trillion calories a year are wasted. Just by reducing American food waste, enough calories for 200 million people a year could be saved.
