We've worked for many years to help consumers to reduce food waste and to explain how good packaging prevents it. Check out our seasonal recipes in the Green Kitchen; recipes for a better planet and get advice on how to shop, store and cook food in an energy-efficient, environmentally responsible way.

It takes significant amounts of resources, energy, water, time and money to grow and produce food. If the food doesn't survive the journey from farm to fork, all those resources go to waste.

 

Good packaging is the best solution.

Packaging protects food from the farm to the shops so it arrives home fresh and in perfect condition.

Packaging helps it keep fresh at home too. Follow the storage instructions on the packaging to keep it that way.

We've also done detailed studies to understand the environmental impact of growing, processing, transporting, storing and cooking food - Table for One; the energy cost to feed one person and Environmental Impact of Packaging in the UK Food Supply System.
