Food waste

We want more veg to go from plates to bellies, not bins. It saves you money, helps food go further, and helps the environment, too! We’ve brought together some of our experts and content to help you reduce food waste – and stress – in your house.

How much are you wasting?

Did you know that if food waste was a country, it would be the third largest in the world?!


The great thing about this is that by being food waste savvy, we can not only save ourselves money and make our meals go further, but we are actually helping the planet at the same time.

Throwing food away is frustrating – it feels like money in the bin. Fortunately, there are some simple steps that can keep this from happening, meaning more veg gets eaten and less money is spent unnecessarily. Win-win!

We’ve brought together some of our experts including nutrionist Charlotte Radcliffe RNtr. and eco-chef Tom Hunt to share their top (but easy!) tips for cutting your food waste down.
