Focusing on the crucial sustainability challenge of reducing food loss at the level of consumer society, this volume provides an in-depth, research-based overview of this multifaceted problem. It considers the myriad environmental, economic, social, and ethical factors associated with the enormous amount of food waste, which also end up wasting water, air, electricity, and fuel, which are necessary for food processing.

This book uniquely examines the social and cultural views of food waste management, shedding new light on the topic by emphasizing the consumer/household perspective throughout. Drawing on a wide variety of disciplines, the book presents philosophical reflections, practical examples and case studies, and potential solutions to the problem of increasing food waste.
