Introduction

The topic of my bachelor thesis is now decided.

Food waste is currently a huge global problem. «One-third of the total mass of food produced is either wasted or lost. This equals 1,3 billion tons a year» (Gustavsson et al., 2011).

The project idea is to develop a system or an application that helps households throw away less food. The system is meant to give them an overview of what they have in their kitchen at all times. The goal is to prevent households from buying unnecessary food and throw away less. Creating a new way of shopping, sharing, cooking and disposing.
