“Sell By,” “Best By,” “Use By.” If food labels are confusing you, you’re not alone. That confusion is causing us to dump tons of perfectly edible food.

It’s a loss of about $161.6 billion in retail value and 1,249 calories per American per day.
On a global scale, food waste amounts to about one-third of food produced for human consumption, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). That’s about 1.3 billion metric tons of food. The richest countries waste nearly as much food as the entire net food production of sub-Saharan Africa.

You will make the maintenance monkey very happy. Thanks for your cooperation!
