5 quick tips about food wastage
1. Shop smart. Plan meals, use grocery lists, and avoid impulse buys. This way, you’re less likely to buy things you don’t need and that you’re unlikely to actually consume.
2. Practice FIFO. It stands for First In, First Out. When unpacking groceries, move older products to the front of the fridge/freezer/pantry and put new products in the back.
3. Use it all. When cooking, use every piece of whatever food you’re cooking with, whenever possible.
4. Monitor what you throw away. Designate a week in which you write down everything you throw out on a regular basis.
5. Be realistic. If you live alone, you won’t need the same number of apples as a family. If you rarely cook, don’t stock up on goods that have to be cooked in order to be consumed.
