The Real Cost of Waste
Published: 17 Jul 2009
A report published by WRAP about the food we waste has revealed some shocking statistics. 6.7million tonnes of food is wasted every year by UK households. And, an estimated 61% of food thrown away could be avoided if it had been managed better.
Food waste costs us, the UK, £10.2 billion each year.
We all waste food unnecessarily. On average, every one of us throws away 70kg of avoidable food a year - that's the weight of an average person!
Food that looked or smelt bad or had gone mouldy account for 1.22million tonnes of food each year, which is where Fresh Pod comes in. With the ability to increase the shelf life of your fresh fruit and veg by up to 4 times, it gives you as much opportunity as possible to avoid wastage.
So before we all throw away another 1.6billion apples why not try a Fresh Pod and see what a difference it can make.
