BENGALURU: A man in a remote village of Africa is battling for his life out of hunger while at the same time a man dumps gallons of food waste collected from a restaurant in a city in Germany. We see that food is the unfortunate thing that has been taken for granted in the world today. And some countries of all seem to be wasting hundreds of thousands of tons of food every year much more rapidly than they should.



However top10for.com released the list of top ten countries with highest rate of food shortage. To our surprise, there are some ‘developed’ countries which happen to waste the most food—



#1 Denmark—



One of the Scandinavian countries, Denmark is known to have one of the most exquisite lifestyles with organized system of healthcare, transportation and other facilities in place. The darker is probably less known to the world. Reports reveal that people here waste excess amounts of packed and unpacked food item and drinks. Estimates declare that 660 kilograms of food per person is wasted here, most of which is generated from restaurants, cafes, catering centers and houses. Many awareness programs have been initiated in Denmark to control this situation but none gave positive results.
