Use Your Loaf And Don’t Be A Waster!

Use Your Loaf And Don’t Be A Waster!

The average household in the UK wastes the equivalent of six meals every week, costing near to £60 a month for the average family.

A study by Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) has shown that, despite a significant drive to reduce the problem, the waste costs the UK £12.5 billion a year.

Food items that are discarded every year include the equivalent to:

5.8 million potatoes 5.9 million glasses of milk 24 million slices of bread 86 million whole chickens

Even though households have cut avoidable food waste since 2007 by 21% (a consumer saving of £13 billion) in recent years this has slowed and 4.2 million tonnes of edible food has still been wasted.
