What is food waste?
Food waste is any food that is not eaten and is thrown away instead. This might be because it has gone past its sell by date, because it didn’t look normal so isn’t sold in the supermarket or due to cooking too much and throwing some away. It is better to reduce food waste than recycle, by not buying or cooking too much.
Wow fact: The average family of 4 wastes up to £720 a year by throwing food away!
