Supplementary notes

* Estimated financing requirements to reduce food waste in the U.S. by 20 percent over a decade. The figures translate to an average of approximately two billion U.S. dollars spent per year on food waste reduction, but amounts to only one-tenth of a cent per pound of food wasted. It is estimated that this investment in food waste reduction will amount to approximately 100 billion U.S. dollars in economic benefits to the U.S., including approximately 20 billion U.S. dollars in increased business profits.
