Canada ranks poorly on food sustainability

Canada ranks poorly in a food sustainability index published by the Economist magazine in England.

It’s the second year the Economist has published the list and France has ranked best both times.

The top scored countries overall are France, Japan,
Germany, Spain, Sweden, Portugal, Italy, South
Korea and Hungary.

Canada is in second spot, behind the United Kingdom, in the second tier.

In general, those countries that place in the top quartile typically
demonstrate strong and effectively implemented
government policy on food waste and loss,
agriculture-related conservation and research, and
nutrition education, the Economist says.
