Welcome to the all new Love Food Hate Waste website!
2 Apr 2012
A big welcome to everyone; whether you are a regular visitor to lovefoodhatewaste.com, or a new guest we're delighted you're here!
Most of us simply don’t realise just how much food we throw away and even more of us don't admit to it. Why not take a look at our About Food Waste feature to find out how much we're throwing away and why it's an issue
At the moment we're focussing on making the most of our breakfasts - why? Well, in the UK we actually throw away an estimated £2 billion worth of breakfast foods such as bread and yoghurt every single year! And that's just from our homes.
Ever thrown a yoghurt in the bin because it got left at the back of the fridge and went off? You're not alone - around 1.8 million yoghurts are wasted by us - why not freeze it before it's date next time? Makes a great frozen yoghurt dessert!
And given we waste around the equivalent of 37 million slices of bread every single day in the UK why on earth are one in four of us skipping breakfast at some point during the week?
Next time you buy a loaf pop a few slices in the freezer and then toast from frozen - works perfectly.
