Western concerns about food waste have intensified and recently led a former executive in the food retail industry to develop a business model in which food waste is reduced upstream of consumers.
Trader Table, a concept proposed by David Rauch, former president of Trader Joe grocery chain, is a proposed hybrid grocery chain --

There is a site for expired food, and then a nutrition counter is sold-ready meals.
The use of products will not be brand
Most places are located in urban markets where services are insufficient.
Due to the re-use of these products, such items will extend the shelf
The life of many foods is often buried.
This commitment reflects the growing unease generated by recent statistics that consumers throw out their food prematurely, and because of problematic food appointments, we have 40 food supplies not used each year
This is equivalent to an average of $1,500 a year for food in a family of four in Canada, all of which are disturbing high figures.
There are many factors contributing to this situation.
First of all, Western consumers have resistance to any defects in the entire consumer goods, especially food that has become accustomed to buying the highest quality at affordable prices.
After the United States and Singapore, Canadians can get the cheapest food basket in the world.
Rich, affordable and convenient consumers face greater risks.

The food industry may have been too successful in providing consumers with what they have become accustomed to: Delicious, attractive, affordable food.
When the due date is reached, the alternative is too notable.
That\'s simple.
This phenomenon is combined with an increasing focus on supply chain discipline.
More and more manufacturers use the \"best before\" date on packaging to force food dealers and retailers to manage inventory in stores to improve profitability.
Retailers can say to be more careful on product shelves
Life, because consumers can buy dates at any time.
In turn, consumers can get a fresher, higher
High quality products.
So since product dating is everywhere in the industry, inventory turnover has grown exponentially in recent years.
However, some people believe that supply chain discipline has gone too far,

It has been used to illustrate the problem.
Others complain that Canada\'s labeling policy in relation to expiration and best before date is too vague.
However, Canada\'s rules are relatively simple and clear compared to the United States and other countries.
In fact, other countries allow more abstract \"sales\"by\" or \"Best-if-used-

The challenge for food dating is to provide clearer information directly to consumers.
When the risk is actually assessed
Time, the primary source of information that the consumer has is before the due date or the \"best\" date.
The most effective way to reduce waste for consumers is to let products get more accurate information at home when they are in cabinets, freezers and refrigerators.
A series of packaging strategies are needed for this purpose.
For example, active packaging or smart packaging is a food packaging that interacts with the contents in chemistry or biology.
Labels can let consumers know if the product is still safe to eat.
These technologies are readily available, but they come at a cost;
Given that food safety in the Canadian market currently has little or no currency at all, manufacturers must find ways to financially support an increase in costs.
For some consumers, given the current low profit margins in the food industry, prices need to rise in order to make smarter packaging on store shelves viable.
As part of the food industry\'s food traceability program, an affordable solution may actively absorb consumers.
Specifically, the QR code is a public square barcode that can be scanned with any smartphone and can be used to provide consumers with more information about when the product is manufactured and the expected shelf life.
The QR code can also provide tips on how to relocate foods that may be considered unsafe.
Without raising food prices, giving consumers direct access to data and making better choices, there may be a difference in reducing premature food disposal.
