What a waste! Britons throw away £10bn in food every year...

I have just read an incredible piece in last Thursday's Independent, reporting that we in Britain throw away as much as £10 billion worth a year of food -that's £610 for an average family with children. This is staggering, and would be at any time. That these figures have come out while thousands starve in Burma as its government carries on exporting rice to the west, some of it perhaps destined to eventually end up in a Sussex landfill site, really sends a chill down my spine. Read the full story here.
