China has stepped up measures to reduce food waste.

The "Clean Plate Campaign" comes after Mr Xi highlighted that Covid-19 had "sounded the alarm" on food waste.

He added that China had to "maintain a sense of crisis about food security".

It also comes after weeks of mass flooding across southern China which left farms wrecked and ruined tons of produce.

Jenny Marshall is project manager for love food hate waste. She joined Tim Dower to talk about China's action towards reducing food waste.
