More than enough food is being produced to feed the world, but almost a billion people remain hungry or malnourished.

Reducing food waste is a major issue and not just about good food going to waste; wasting food costs a lot of money every year and has serious environmental implications too.

In this show we explore what should be done to reduce the amount of food going waste in rich western nations and ask: How critical is the wastage of food and what can be done to eradicate hunger in the world?

Inside Story discusses with guests: Sheikh Hamad Bin Ali al-Thani, the vice chairman of the Qatar National Food Security Program; Jean-Michel Grand, the executive director of Action against Hunger; and Gregory Barrow, the chief spokesman of the World Food Program.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Friday, November 26, 2010.
