The EU's Commissioner for Health and Food Safety has hit out food waste, calling it "immoral".
Speaking yesterday at the Ballymaloe Litfest, in Co Cork, Vytenis Andriukaitis spoke about how he was born in Siberia, in a Soviet gulag, where food was scarce.
Mr Andriukaitis highlighted how Irish innovation FoodCloud, an app-based invention which Tesco uses to redistribute its surplus food to charities and the community, could help in tackling wastage.
