    How to use "Discards" in context?

    It's impossible to know exactly how many millions of pounds of food are discarded each year in the United Kingdom. Because food has various uses (such as livestock feed), it is difficult to estimate the total amount of food that is wasted. However, according to the Campaign to End Food Waste, an estimated 530,000 tonnes of food are wasted in the UK every year - that's enough to feed every person in Britain twice over!

    Food waste happens when edible food is discarded because it is not edible or it is not of the quality that people want. It can also be discarded if it is too expensive to use or if it is out of date.
