Food television impresario Anthony Bourdain is throwing his weight behind a new cause with the release of “Wasted!,” a documentary that sheds light on the massive production of global food waste.
The feature length documentary will be available on-demand and released in theaters on Friday, October 13 and sees the chef-cum-media personality united with a cast of food world heavy hitters like Mario Batali, Dan Barber, Sean Brock, and Danny Bowien, to name a few. Together, they tackle the heavy truths of our global system of food production and disposal.
Judging by the trailer, the documentary examines every link on the chain that comprises our current food system, looking wherever possible for places to maximize usage and reduce waste. The truths that belie food waste statistics are harrowing and it seems this documentary is poised to confront them head on.
