In Hungary, the amount of food waste decreased by 4% between 2016 and 2019, as according to the food waste survey conducted with the involvement of 165 households at the end of 2019. An average Hungarian citizen throws 65 kilograms of food in the trash every year, while according to the survey involved 100 households, in 2016 it was still 68 kilograms – the National Food Chain Safety Office (Nébih) told MTI on Tuesday.

The 4 percent decrease is also a significant result, as the increase in purchasing power over the past period was approximately 16 percent. However, it was noted that food prices have risen above inflation. (MTI)
