Contrary to popular belief, consumers waste more food than farmers and grocers – households are responsible for over 40% of the food wasted in the United States. Dairy products and vegetables are estimated to make up almost 40% of the food wasted by consumers. Fruit, grain products, and meat, poultry, and fish are the other leading categories that contribute to food wasted by consumers.
