Buying 'funny fruit' will help feed the world, UN says
Paying attention to expiry dates and "zeroing down your fridge" with recipes that use up food set to go bad helps as well, as does freezing food, asking restaurants for smaller portions, eating leftovers, composting food or donating it to food banks, soup kitchens and shelters.
Retailers can offer discounts for food that is nearing its sell-by date, standardizing labels and donating more food.
Restaurants were urged to "limit menu choices and introduce flexible portioning," auditing how much food they waste, and setting up "staff engagement programmes."
Finally, an Internet site, thinkeatsave.org is to serve as a global platform for sharing information on other initiatives that people come up with.
