Food waste in Southeast Asia – Spicing up a media foray
Food wastage in Malaysia has hit the fore-front in the media through the power of Facebook once again. This evoked international anger at the tossing down the drain of 600kg of the popular spicy noodle soup known as ‘Sarawak Laksa’. This followed a record attempt for the largest bowl made in Malaysia’s Plaza Merdeka. Thus food waste in Southeast Asia is becoming a trending topic in Southeast Asia, like it is around the world.
