Around 130 million kilograms of food waste is generated each year (23 kg per capita/year) from the household sector. Annually discarded food from Finnish households is approximately equal to the annual carbon dioxide emissions of 100,000 cars. At the national level Finnish households discard food of value €400–550 million annually. Altogether, households, restaurants, food industry and retails produce 335–460 million kilograms of food waste in Finland per year. The total climate impact of food waste was approximately 1000 million kilograms of CO2-equivalent per year.
