How much food waste is there in the United States?
In the United States, food waste is estimated at between 30-40 percent of the food supply. This estimate, based on estimates from USDA’s Economic Research Service of 31 percent food loss at the retail and consumer levels, corresponded to approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of food in 2010. This amount of waste has far-reaching impacts on society:
- Wholesome food that could have helped feed families in need is sent to landfills.
- Land, water, labor, energy and other inputs are used in producing, processing, transporting, preparing, storing, and disposing of discarded food.
What causes food loss and waste?
Food loss occurs for many reasons, with some types of loss—such as spoilage—occurring at every stage of the production and supply chain. Between the farm gate and retail stages, food loss can arise from problems during drying, milling, transporting, or processing that expose food to damage by insects, rodents, birds, molds, and bacteria. At the retail level, equipment malfunction (such as faulty cold storage), over-ordering, and culling of blemished produce can result in food loss. Consumers also contribute to food loss when they buy or cook more than they need and choose to throw out the extras. (Source: https://www.usda.gov/foodwaste/faqs)

The Future Of Bargain Boxed
As we work to expand the brand and base of bargain boxed, we also are working to expand the inventory selection we have to offer. We are currently working to grow our affiliate offerings for various physical goods such as coffee tables, vacuum cleaners, blenders, cribs, and much more. As we grow in our affiliate and manufacturer product offerings, we plan to introduce produce products in the form of various vegetables such as tomatoes, lettuce, carrots etc. and various fruits such as apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, etc.
Once we can establish a basis in these products, we then plan to expand our offerings in the Meat & Dairy category. As we expand into more product availability we will also be able to make more of an impact in reducing waste and creating viable options for those in the United States and then, the rest of the world!
