Malaysia’s Food Waste Facts
Malaysians generate about 38,000 tonnes of waste per day. Around 15,000 tonnes is food waste, which 3,000 tonnes is edible food. 3,000 tonnes could feed 2.2 million people, in another words all the people in the Kuala Lumpur. A report by SWCorp (Perbadanan Pengurusan Sisa Pepejal Dan Pembersihan Awam), shown an average Malaysian household spends RM900 a month on food, and throws away RM225 of food a month. This accounts to around RM2,700 a year per household of expenses of food that were thrown in the end.
The mission started with an aspiration to streamline food waste cycle in Malaysia. Seeing the success of other countries by using the advantage of technology, as a true Malaysian who understands our unique culture and context, the passion of ‘IF IS NOT ME, WHO WILL IT BE’ born. The motivation grows as we receive more support from like-minded people who have the heart to save food rather than seeing the food being thrown. This go in tandem with seeing the smiles from underprivileged families that received sponsored food. From physical works of collection, storage and distribution – it is NOW the time to showcase a revolutionary food donation platform. With the substantial physical works reduced, we can reach out to the community that have never been reached before, and to cover nationwide of potential food waste and family in need of food, much faster and more efficient.
