Reducing waste

Love food, hate waste

We support the national Love Food Hate Waste campaign.

Did you know:

  • around a third of all bought food is thrown away
  • most of this food could have been eaten
  • around 90% of us don't realise how much good food we throw out
  • in the UK, we throw away 15 million tonnes of food each year
  • food waste has a serious impact on the environment
  • food that is thrown away is a major contributor to greenhouse gases
