Food. Glorious Food! And it's not just Broadway singing.

Now, Dubai’s landfills are singing to the tune of 1,000 tonnes of food waste per day, according to a senior municipality official on Tuesday.

The plan is to put those tonnes of discarded food to good use by turning them into biofuel.

Food waste is not limited to residential homes: Hotels, catering companies and schools also generate food waste.
