Attitudes Toward Food Waste Need To Change, Entrepreneur Says

October 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
An activist and entrepreneur in the U.K. believes peoples’ attitudes toward food waste need to change soon.  Dawson Costa, founder of Rubies in the Rubble, says people need to realize that all food is treasure, not a cheap commodity that can be tossed out. Her company has been turning surplus fruits and vegetables into chutneys and relishes profitably for five years, despite a prevailing negative attitude. It’s important that people stop calling surplus food waste – she doesn’t know a better substitute word yet – because “it’s just natural.”
