Food loss and food waste happen in every part of food production system; from gathering and farming, in production and transportation chain, of business activities, and also in the kitchens and after tables. Not just ugly veggies, there are mistakes made during transportations, leftovers from consumers, and what’s(what is) more are the hidden rules that for giving high quality products in markets and cause of laws. One third of the food produced for human consumptionare wasted per year in the world, which is about 1.3 billion tones.

Food waste is one of the main reason which causes environmental pollutions. If food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Moreover, it also has impact on biodiversity and soils. Our food system is currently responsible for approximately 60% of global terrestrial biodiversity loss, 24% of greenhouse gas emissions and 33% of degraded soils.
There are various reasons to let people realize lots of wasted foods is still fine and nutritious. We do not just recycle ugly fruits, veggies, nearly expired food, by-products produced during food system, but we also purchase them as regular ingredients to make snacks and sweets in creative ways for trying out new recipes at the same time. To re-think the traditional way of making food, “get ingredients after thinking recipes”; we “collect surplus ingredients and then create recipes afterwards”, for using up as much surplus food as possible and getting the food back into our daily lives.
In the procedures, we reduced food waste and also put surplus ingredients into another level not just for charity, for education, or for advocacy. It can be a lifestyle accompanied with creativity, arts, design, and social interactions.
