Food is a precious gift. Yet today a third of all food produced will never be eaten. In a world where so many go hungry, this can’t be right.
In the UK we throw away edible food worth £470 per household each year. Meanwhile a third of perfectly edible vegetable crops are discarded from our fields due to supermarkets’ strict cosmetic standards.
This wasteful food cycle has a big carbon footprint, making climate change worse and leading to more droughts, floods and less reliable rain.
But together we can break the cycle. Call on your supermarket today to reduce its waste, and pledge to make the most of your food at home too.
