The Saudi Food Bank, Eta’am, urged Saudi Arabia to set a fine of one thousand riyals per one kilo of surplus food following a report by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) that revealed that the country topped the world’s food waste index.
Shoshan said that imposing a fine on surplus food and enforcing mandatory agreements between hotels, wedding halls, and restaurants and environmental and food preservation centers will help limit the amount of food waste produced. (Supplied)
