EFFECT OF INVESTMENTS, GLOBALIZATION AND ECONOMIC CONDITION ON FOOD WASTE

Abstract

The objective of the study is to analyze the effect of investments, globalization and the economic condition on food waste. Data from 172 countries in 2016, from the FAOSTAT database of the Food and Agriculture Organization, were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results show that investments, coming from international or national sources, end up having an impact in reducing food waste. Globalization and the country's economic condition have a positive impact with the reduction of losses in the initial stages of the production process.
