Despite record highs in world food production, the number of people going hungry globally continues to rise. More than 40 percent of fruits are thrown away — unattractive or spoiled items are immediately disposed of by groceries and supermarkets as they are deemed unsellable. We recently wrote about the French supermarket Intermarche’s product line — Les Fruits & Légumes Moches — which is produced entirely from fruit and veg deemed too ugly to sell. Now, FoPo food powder is another ingenious solution created by students at Lund University in Sweden, who plan to freeze-dry fruit immediately before it expires, creating a nutritious food product from what would otherwise have been waste, and increasing its shelf-life from two weeks to two years.
