None of us likes throwing food away, but some folk seem to be much more concerned by "sell by" and "best before" dates than they perhaps need to be.
Research just published by WRAP shows that the amount of avoidable food waste has been reduced by 21% since 2007. But it appears that UK households are still throwing away the equivalent of six meals every week.
The average person wastes £200 a year buying good food which is then thrown away (this doesn't include peelings or bones) — for a typical household this rises to £470 and for a family, £700 a year.
Government initiatives that help address such issues are sometimes regarded as "nanny state" tactics, but if you feel receptive to some good tips on reducing food waste, then you may be interested in the The Love Food, Hate Waste workshop, happening in Aylesbury this week.
It's being run by the Joint Waste Partnership for Buckinghamshire, and will be covering topics such as gauging portion sizes, storing food safely and understanding food labels.
The Partnership's Love Food, Hate Waste campaign is working to raise awareness and understanding of the issue of food waste, and to encourage better use of what is now an expensive commodity.
The workshop is being held at Morrisons, Station Way, Aylesbury, on Thursday (21st November) from 7pm — 9 pm.
