Of all the food in the world, one third is eventually thrown away. That’s a shame, of course. In China, the government has therefore launched a campaign against food waste. And it’s called: empty your plate!
The campaign was launched by President Xi Jinping. He wants the Chinese to throw away less food. In the country 18 billion kilos of food would end up in the trash every year.
According to some, the action is not only against food waste. Because of the floods in the country and the corona measures, farmers have grown less food. Then you’d better be careful with it.
