UK householders throw away £12 billion worth of food and drink {also called avoidable food and drink waste} that could have been consumed every year.

Basically we throw away around one third of the food we buy. The most common reason for food being wasted is that it’s left unused.

Making a few simple changes to the way we shop for food, store the food and use the food can save us a money but also have a significant environmental impact.
