JAKARTA -- Eva Bachtiar, founder of a social enterprise that runs food aid programs in Indonesia, laments the problem of waste in a country of more than 270 million.
Indonesia is "still in baby steps" mode when it comes to taking care of the environment, Bachtiar says, and the issue of food waste "has not been discussed and addressed much."
