Fresher for longer – the facts on food waste

Have you ever thought about the amount of food you waste in your household? A shocking report from WRAP suggests that food waste is costing households an average of £470 a year, which rises to a worrying £700 for families with children. This is the equivalent of approximately £60 a month.*

Did you know?

If we all stop wasting food that could have been eaten, the benefit to the planet would be the equivalent of taking 1 in 4 cars off the road!

The Good News!

Between 2007 and 2012 avoidable food waste has reduced by 21% which amounts to over 1 million tonnes.

Macfarlane’s Reseal-it® solution is an easy open, re-closable labelling system, allowing consumers to easily open products and reseal them again, without the fuss of cling film or storage containers. This ensures freshness and pack integrity while helping to prolong the life of the food product resulting in less food waste.
