Save Food and Feed the world

Save Food and Feed the world

As we prepare meals with our LOFAHO containers in our refrigerator, not only we can maximize the space and organize, they are proven to keep foods fresh up to 5X longer and save up to $2500 per year.

How often do we buy in bulk because of great deal, only to throw away unused portions? With our Prepsealer LOFAHO, you can take advantage of special deals of sales and seasonal buys all of the time and preserve in the right way so you can save money to help others or do more meaningful things. 

We'd like to share the inspirational resourceful article about food waste in US as below:

Do you know we can feed the world with foods we waste? We often purchase more that we can eat in mass quantities at big discount super markets when there are great deals. According to the Food and Agriculture organization (FAO) of united nations, approximately 1/3 of all food produce for human consumption goes to waste. Despite alarming global hunger statistics, the FAO found we throw out an estimated 1.3 billion tones of food annually - four times the amount required to feed the world's 795 million hungriest people.

In North America, the largest value in food waste occurs in the households, followed by grocery stores, restaurants and institutional food services like hospitals, colleges and universities. 

Joanne Berken Kamp, Senior Advocate with food and agriculture program of the US Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) says " What we found in our research is people are often extremely conscious of the cost of food when they purchase it, but they are oblivious to the cost when they throw it out. The average family of four spends $1500 a year on the food that they throw out. Busy lifestyles are another factor.

So what can average consumers and households do to reduce waste? First, Plan meals, shop with a list, ignore " best before" dates, educate yourself and family on how to store and use produce. Second, adopt some fresh thinking and stop discarding foods you previously considered inedible. Third, using up leftovers or overlooked ingredients can be a boon to creativity.

Educating ourselves and the next generations on the value of food, where it comes from and the resources required to produce it, seems key to reducing waste. As Senegalese engineer and environmentalist Baba Dioum said " In the end, we will conserve only what we love;  We will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught"
