ISTANBUL (TR) - The information gathered by Univera, which provides corporate technology solutions, shows that the waste in the food industry is much more than the waste experienced during the storage and distribution phase. Turkey Statistical Institute (TUIK) data, household consumption expenditure 19.7% share of housing costs in the second largest expense item on the bill after the country's economy experienced in the food waste which 214 billion per year. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report, only 9.5 million tons of 60 million tons of herbal products produced last year have been wasted without reaching the consumer.

Univera examines the wastage rates in the storage and distribution stages of the food types, and that 28% of the total fruit and vegetable produced is wasted and this rate is 5% in the consumption phase. In milk and dairy products, while the rate of loss before consumption is 8.5%, consumption consumption is only 1.5%. Another outstanding food group is pulses. While the wastage rate of the legumes in the post-harvest storage, processing, packaging and distribution processes is 13%, the loss in consumption corresponds to 4% of the total production. These figures reveal the size of the waste experienced during the storage and distribution phase. Univera Product Manager Tarık Dizer said, ler The StokBar software we have developed is digitizing the production, storage and shipment process and prevents many errors that occur when the processes in which the product is most wasted are managed manually. StokBar, which is a 100% domestic production, minimizes human error and offers many features such as intelligent warehouse management, supply chain management and inventory management.
1.3 billion tons of food is wasted every year in the world
Around 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted every year around the globe, causing 3.3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide to be released, accelerating global warming.
