1.0 Introduction In recent years, food shortages are prevailing in some countries and people have begun to recognize serious concerns about this issue. Food wastage can be defined as the food that is discarded or lost uneaten (in-text reference). Food wastage is not only an economic loss, all of the natural resources used for growing, packaging, transporting and marketing were also wasted. FAO (2013) evaluate that each year, approximately one-third of all food produced (1.3 billion tons) for human consumption in the world is lost or wasted and this 1.3 billon tons of food is enough to feed 4 times 868 million starving people. It also represents a missed opportunity to improve global food security and the use of resources from food chains in a world where one in 8 is hungry.
