Waste-Conscious Restaurant Cooks Up Meals Using Nearly Expired Foods
Danish restaurant redirects "dumpster food" back onto their ever-changing menu.
Supermarkets discard fresh produce everyday in order to fulfill the public's demand for the freshest, best-looking foods. This social phenomena is directly responsible for the increasing amount of wasted food. According to Businessweek, we threw away $180 billion worth of food in 2012, and that was just in America. Just imagine how much food is thrown out across the globe.
Danish Restaurant Rub Og Stub aspires to reduce the amount of food waste by serving nutritious meals made from ingredients that would have been thrown away by supermarkets. Similar restaurants, such as The Daily Table in Dorchester Massachusetts, have also adopted the same food saving technique.
