It works with businesses, individuals, communities and local authorities to help them reduce waste, recycle more and use resources sustainably. Ylva &amp; Miriam are Regional Partnership Managers, working to build effective partnerships across our region. But were here today to talk specifically about food waste as part of our Love Food Hate Waste campaign.</p><p>**Looking at household food and drink waste in the UK, in total we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink every year.</p><p>Of that 7.2 million tonnes 4.4 million tonnes per year is what we call avoidable i.e. this is food and drink what was at some point prior to being thrown away edible, a slice of bread, an apple, a slice of ham etc this is approximately two-thirds of all food and drink waste.</p><p>The remaining 2.8 million tonnes per year is split equally between what we call possibly avoidable and unavoidable food waste.</p><p>Possibly avoidable is food and drink that some people eat and others do not for example bread crusts, or foods and drinks that can be eaten when a food is prepared in one way but not in another for example generated when making mash potato, may have been eaten when making jacket potatoes. </p><p>Unavoidable is food or drink preparation that is not, and has not been edible under normal circumstances for example meat bones, egg shells, pineapple skin and tea bags.</p><p>Note that composting at home is a solution to the possibly avoidable and unavoidable food waste.</p><p>*The avoidable food waste in Scotland is 570,000 tonnes.</p><p>Looking at avoidable food and drink waste the reasons why people throw away food waste can be broken down giving us valuable insights;</p><p>The first main reason as to why food and drink is wasted is because we cook, prepare or serve too much. So for example, thats us cooking too much and not knowing what to do with the leftovers, or dishing too much up onto peoples plates which ends up being thrown away, or even because we have perhaps burnt it during cooking.</p><p>The other main reason we throw away avoidable food is because we have not go round to using it in time, for example it has gone past its use-by date, or has gone mouldy or rotten, or smelt or tasted bad.</p><p>There are other reasons as to why food is thrown away but the research was not able to split these reasons out.</p><p>*So we know we are wasting food and drink 570,000 tonnes of it but what foods are we wasting?</p><p>Actually we waste all of them!</p><p>The foods and drinks wasted comprises many different groups, but the most prominent by weight are fresh vegetables and salad, which make up 15% of the wasted food and drink , drink - 17%, fresh fruit - 9% and bakery - 12%**</p><p>The greenhouse gas emissions associated with avoidable food and drink waste is the equivalent of approximately 1.7 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.</p><p>*In financial terms what is the cost to the consumer of wasting food and drink?</p><p>UK households are throwing away 1 billion worth of good food every year thats the cost of purchasing all the avoidable food waste.</p><p>To the average household thats 430 per year, and if you have children in your household the cost increases to 550 a year.</p><p>So in summary if we all stopped wasting food that could have been eaten, UK households could save up to 35 a month each. *We hear this excuse all the time.</p><p>But we saw at the beginning that the retailers are actually only responsible for a tiny part of the food waste (around 2%).</p><p>*Across the UK, the amount of food waste was analysed. The key thing to note is that Householders (us) are responsible for nearly half of all food waste (not the supermarkets who they like to blame). So teaching pupils the importance of not wasting food is key in preventing future generations from wasting food, and to help educate their parents as to what they can do now.</p><p>NB. Schools come under the Agriculture, Hospitality and Other section.*Context1996-7 total household waste was 22.5 Mt2002-3 increased to 26 MtIncreasing by 16% over 6 yearsNo more than 5% waste to landfill by 2025 (Zero Waste Plan) and the Waste (Scotland Regulations) had stated that all businesses producing over 50kgs per week of food waste will need to separate out food waste from 2014 and Local Authorities will have to offer household food waste collections (except in rural areas). </p><p>Signatories are key retailers and brands from the grocery sector 53 retailers and brands including all the major supermarkets. Among them are also the big food manufacturers such as Premier Foods and Northern Foods who produce all the branded goods such as Bisto, Ryvita, Jordans, Branston Pickle, etc. and of course AG Barr who make Irn Bru.</p><p>*Packaging AG Barr, thanks to state of the art technology at their Scottish plant, they have reduced packaging on their 2l, 500ml and 250ml bottles. This has saved 1,869 tonnes of CO2 eq/505 tonnes of plastic. The 500ml and 250ml bottles are amongst the lightest within the carbonated soft drinks market.*Kingsmill introduced their little big loaf.</p><p>Other examples include a choice of product sizes to help consumers buy the right amount for their needs, such as Heinz Beans Snap Pots, and Lloyd Grossmans For One range of cooking sauces.</p><p>Further examples of package functionality includes twin packs for products such as salads, par-baked goods and meat products which allow the consumer to only open part of the product, while the rest remains sealed for later. Heinz Beans now also offer convenient fridge packs with single portion markings on the side. </p><p>*More products in resealable packaging to help products stay fresher for longer. Clearer on-pack labelling on where to store items to prolong their shelf lifePackaging needs to be FIT FOR PURPOSE: Packaging can be really useful in reducing the problem of food waste. For example: According to the Cucumber Growers Association, shrink-wrapped cucumbers are still saleable after 14 days whereas without this sheath of plastic, it is unsaleable after 3 days.</p><p>Morrisons has begun scientific research in conjunction with Writtle College, a partner of the University of Essex, to understand how packaging affects the life of fresh fruit and vegetables and whether it can benefit storage in the home. For example, the life of broccoli can be lengthened by two days if kept packaged and in the fridge.</p><p>Co-op have put food storage messages on their fruit and veg bags.</p><p>The supermarkets are also promoting waste reduction through websites, magazines and roadshows. Asda have a greener living website with LFHW messages and advice. Co-op watch your waste events have been hugely successful.There have been magazine features such as Rise and Shine in partnership with Warburtons to highlight storage advice regarding bakery products</p><p>**The LFHW website is a great place to look for tips and advice. </p><p>About FOOD WASTE includes detailed reports on waste. *We recommend 5 simple steps to reducing food waste.</p><p>1. Planning</p><p>Checking whats in your cupboard, fridge and freezer before you go shopping.Thinking of what you want to be eating over the next few daysMaking a shopping listLooking a recipe books for ideas and leftover meal ideasThinking of your weekly schedule and family commitmentsThink of how many people will be eating, food preferences*Snapshot of the planning section of the website</p><p>You can download a blank planner to make a menu plan and shopping list very useful. *The key behaviours around date label are:</p><p>1. Check the dates on food regularly and use foods with the shortest date first2. Freeze for later foods you wont get round to eating in time3. Checking dates saves money and lets you enjoy food at its best.</p><p>*The website gives guidance on the different kinds of labels;</p><p>Use by; Best BeforeDisplay until/sell by*Savvy Storage - most leftovers will keep for up to two days in the fridge well wrapped, most fruit and veg will stay fresher for longer stored in the fridge, and wrap well or store in air-tight containers fresh foods once opened</p><p>The freezer is such a useful tool;It helps us to prolong the life of the food by slowing the growth of microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts and moulds) which cause the food to spoil It allows us to prepare food in advance to save time when were busyIt allows us extra time to think up how best to use our food. And it doesnt destroy nutrients!Foods can be frozen up to one day before the 'use by' date (doesnt need to be immediately after purchase)</p><p>Remember Avoid UFOs (unidentified frozen objects) by labelling the foods well before freezing remember to include the dateUse appropriate storage containers freezer bags take up less space than rigid containersUse the freezer often, dont treat it like a black hole research shows that the average household could survive on the contents of their freezer for 11 days!Keep a good supply of essential foods for convenience (frozen veg/pastry/homemade ready meals/fruit/bread)If cooking or reheating ensure food is steaming hot all the way through before serving.</p><p>*The freezer is such a useful tool;It helps us to prolong the life of the food by slowing the growth of microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts and moulds) which cause the food to spoil It allows us to prepare food in advance to save time when were busyIt allows us extra time to think up how best to use our food.
