[Today] Cut down food wastage by reducing overconsumption

I refer to the new pilot to cut down on food waste (“Two hawker centres to get new food waste recycling machines”; May 19).
In dealing with the issue of food waste, perhaps one should look at what goes on to our plates in the first place.
If consumers can select the amount of food they require and pay only for that, it will encourage less wastage.
There is no better way to cut down waste than by cutting down on over-consumption.
