In recent times, food waste has become a global concern. Of the different types of organic waste, food makes up the largest constituent of municipal solid waste streams. Food waste is difficult to manage because it contains moisture and it is mixed with other waste during collection and disposal. Major source of food waste includes households, market, restaurants, hotels and food processing industries. Nigeria is a developing country challenged with increase population, unsustainable development and resultant complicated and unproductive urban food waste management. Proper food waste management using integrated approaches can contribute significantly towards climate change mitigation and generate resources.
