Food waste and its accumulation are becoming a critical problem. In this context, this paper takes a look at the general view with the aim of achieving a better understanding of the different types of food waste, and tries to ponder on the required steps or standard management practices should be taken to reduce the impact of food waste burden. The study has tried to analyse the waste management practices, cost of waste management practices etc. in small scale food processing units.
