Romania ranks 10th among European countries generating most food waste



Romania is placed 10th out of 27 in the rankings of the European Union countries generating the most food waste, show figures of a study conducted by Romania Whirlpool.

While food wasting in Romania is below the Western states level, the phenomenon is on the rise, Romania Whirlpool Marketing Manager Mioara Bolozan said.

She explained that 42 percent of the EU-wide wasted food comes from the individual households. The main causes for such losses are the defective planning - certain population brackets overestimate their consumption needs and buy too much food, particularly amid anniversaries and feasts - and the incorrect storage of the foodstuffs in the refrigerator and larder
