AED13 billion worth of food being wasted in UAE per year

11 May 2015

Almost 3.27 million tonnes of food is being wasted in the UAE every year.

That’s over AED 13 billion worth of produced and imported goods being brought into the country.

According to Massar Solutions, the industry needs to act responsibly in reducing the amount of food being wasted as it will bring major economic, social and environmental benefits.

They add that between 20 to 30% of trucks and delivery wagons supplying food need to be equipped with technology, to maintain freshness.
