Following the 2016 and 2019 surveys, the National Food Chain Safety Office (Nébih) will conduct a food waste survey again this year, agrarszektor.hu wrote. The authority is asking whoever wants to know how much food their household is wasting and how much of it could be saved, or just wants to help the work of the agency, participate in the measurement.

Europe is at the forefront of food waste

European consumers are at the forefront of food waste, throwing an average of 92 kg of food per person in the trash a year, Nébih wrote. Hungarian households proved to be more frugal than average, according to Nébih’s latest survey in 2019, which showed an average food waste production of 65 kg, half of which could have been avoided with a little attention. This is 4 percent less than the 2016 figure. (agrarszektor.hu)
