India wastes 40% of all the fresh food produce before it can get to customers. $7 billion worth of Fruits and Vegetables are thrown away each year. For a country of over 1.2 billion people, not only is this a major monetary loss, but also something that worsens conditions for millions of Indians that survive their day on less food than required. Food wastage is also known to have crippled several economies in the past decades. India has been termed as the hunger capital of the world by popular western media.
