Infographic of Food Waste, by type of food and phase of supply chain
This database shows how food types, such as grains, fruits & vegetables and oils, go to waste before reaching human consumers.

For instance, fruits & vegetables are most likely to go to waste (44% is lost), but most of the lost occurs after the foodstuff leaves the field. But much is lost during the growing phase, unlike fishing or oil and bean production, where very little is lost during growing, or grains where lesser amounts are lost during growing. The information comes from a 2011 United Nations study.
