In the UK each household throws the equivalent of £50 of food each month.
Every day we we waste 5.1 million potatoes, 4.4 million apples, 7 million slices of bread, 1.3 million full yoghurt pots, 5500 whole chickens & more!
The government has set targets that by 2025 we will have reduced our waste by 70%.
