FOOD SCIENCE FACT SHEET - IFST

Unsold food can be redistributed to food charities or repurposed as animal feed. If food waste cannot be prevented, then food should be recycled to recover nutrients and/or generate biogas for energy. This can be done by composting or anaerobic digestion. If this is not possible then the wasted food can be incinerated to recover energy. See Figure 1.[1] Registered charity number 1121681. A ...
