The story of food waste
WASTED! The Story of Food Waste, a two part documentary that will change how people buy, cook and eat food will be broadcast on the 7th and 14th April 2019 at 19:30 on SABC 3.
Every year 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown away, adding up to one third of all food grown for human consumption. Filmmakers explore the reasons for this waste and look for ways to fix the problem.
The Rockefeller Foundation, which made a $130 million commitment to cut food waste in half by 2030, supported Zero Point Zero Films and Anthony Bourdain to create WASTED! The Story of Food Waste.
Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Bourdain, Dan Barber, Mario Batali, Massimo Bottura and Danny Bowien, audiences see how the world’s most influential chefs make the most of every kind of food, transforming what most people consider scraps and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people and create a more sustainable food system.
The film also features several food waste reduction stories from all over the world including waste-fed pigs in Japan, a disposal programme that has reduced household food waste by 30% in South Korea, and a garden education curriculum in New Orleans.
WASTED! The Story of Food Waste showcases forward-thinking leaders who show how each of us can make small changes – all of them delicious – to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century.
