We’ve never known more about the way our world works, and our connections to it, than we do today. The information available about our use of food and how our food systems operate can, at times, seem overwhelming.

1. The geography of industrial pollution emissions
2. The scale of food waste in Ireland
3. The cost of food waste on a global scale
4. How much food waste is avoidable
