Cornell University Works with Food Marketing Institute to Prevent Food Waste

Have you ever been unsure whether food has gone bad or not? Did you throw it out anyway?

The US Department of Agriculture estimates that about 30 percent of food is lost or wasted at the retail and consumer level, but there are ways to protect food safety and help your wallet.

Along with the Food Marketing Institute and the USDA, Cornell University has developed the Foodkeeper app that will help consumers ensure they’re preparing foods properly and when to throw food away. With the app’s help, consumers will be able to keep food for longer and save money by preventing unnecessary food waste.
