SA dumps 10 billion kilos of food waste every year, says expert
South Africa is said to have 10 billion kilograms of food waste every year.
So says Roy Henderson, CEO of Green Cell Technologies.
Green Cell Technologies is a biotechnology company that is redefining the food processing sector around the world.
Henderson says big food companies need to make better use of technology to change wasteful behaviour.

According to Henderson, this can be done whilst still benefitting consumers, farmers, manufacturers, retailers, animals, even the planet.
