The demand for variety and abundance of food creates waste at home

As much as 55% of food purchases are unplanned, which leads to over purchasing and food spoilage. Many families are tempted into bulk purchases of food that they will never consume to get a good deal on per-unit costs. A lack of standardization of date labels often leads consumers to throw away food before it’s spoiled, causing an estimated 20% of at-home food waste.
