Food Waste Super Heroes!

In 2013, an estimated 1.35 million tonnes of food and drink in Scotland was wasted. 

This waste, much of it avoidable, costs Scottish households and businesses money and it has a huge impact on the environment.

The Scottish Government has a target to reduce all food waste arising in Scotland by 33% by 2025. There have been some heroic efforts so far to reduce this waste. Scottish household food waste has reduced by 5.7% between 2009 and 2014, which resulted in savings to household budgets of £92 million.
