FOOD WASTE

Fresher for Longer

Green Kitchen front Cover image

We've worked for many years to help consumers to reduce food waste and to explain how good packaging prevents it. Check out the 5th edition of 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.


INCPEN is working with WRAP, Kent Waste Partnership, the Food and Drink Federation, the
Packaging Federation and the British Retail Consortium to help consumers keep food
'Fresher for Longer'.

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.
