Fast Company has taken an in-depth look at 20 companies figuring out how to fight food waste by making new products from food that used to end up in the trash.
According to the report, Americans now waste 70 percent more food than they did in the 1970s. Food waste is also responsible for roughly the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as 37 million cars because when food rots in landfills, it releases methane.
Fast Company looks at several startups making new food from wasted ingredients. And while some are still in their early stages, others have gone mainstream.
