Nine out of 10 people here are concerned about Singapore’s food waste, a new survey has found.

The majority also want food and beverage (F&B) companies here to donate their unsold and near-expiry food that is safe to eat to the needy or sell it at a discount.

Students from the National University of Singapore’s Chua Thian Poh Community Leadership Programme, working with new non-profit group Zero Waste SG, conducted the online survey from February to April this year.

Singapore generated almost 800 million kg of food waste in 2013, and only 13% of it was recycled. We can all play a part in understanding the issues and reducing food waste. Here’s 3 things you can do today:

1) Watch this video by Channel NewsAsia Connect to understand the food waste problem in Singapore.

2) Visit our Save Food Cut Waste website to find out how individuals and households can play a part in reducing food waste in our daily lives and at home. Follow the tips and start reducing food waste along our food cycle.

3) We are working with NUS students from the Chua Thian Poh Community Leadership Programme to conduct a survey to understand consumer’s attitudes towards food waste in the food and beverage (F&B) sector in Singapore. We hope to show the survey results to the F&B companies in order to nudge them to reduce food waste.
