Prepare to love your leftovers because this October we will be Working on Waste.

Latest figures show the average household currently wastes food and drink worth £470 a year. This equates to 4.2 million tonnes of food waste every year in the UK – that’s enough vegetables, bread and dairy products to fill Wembley Stadium several times over.

Throughout October Greencore will be joining an IGD industry-wide initiative, developed in collaboration with WRAP and Love Food Hate Waste, to help us all reduce our household food waste, save some money and have a bit of fun doing it.

Throughout October we will be posting information and tips for what you can do to help minimise food waste at home. Look out for our posts on the this website as well as our social media channels.
