How to reduce food waste

There are a few creative and easy ways to reduce food waste that you can start doing instantly. Here are 3 easy and smart ways to reduce food waste.


1. Use leftovers to your advantage

Before heading to the shop to get your next weekly load, have a root through your fridge/freezer and see what you have in there. 

This is also the same for cupboard products. It is all too easy to miss that box of cereal at the back of your cupboard and end up buying another. Making sure you use all of your opened cereal, and other foodstuffs before buying new will make for much less food waste. Remember to keep an eye out for the ‘Look, Smell, Taste, Don’t Waste’ logo on our boxes and find out more about date labels on the 'Too Good To Go’s' website.


2. Use your freezer

Of course, most of us prefer to eat fresh food, but frozen food can be just as nutritious. One of the very best ways to reduce the amount of food you waste is to cook your favourite recipes and freeze the leftovers. Meaning you can make your food last longer, and it will still taste great when you come to defrost it at a later date. This is the same for cereal – even though it has a long shelf-life in the cupboard.


3. Make sure you plan your meals and only buy what you need

We know that it is all too easy to put things in your basket that you don’t need when walking around the supermarket. But making sure you go with a plan, and a full stomach, will enable you to get the food you need without ending up with food you don’t, and then ultimately wasting it. Not only could this help your family reduce food waste, but it could also help save you money by not buying food you don’t need. 

Reducing food waste, and being smarter with how much we consume, are all part of paving the way for a more sustainable planet. We want to ensure that our cereals not only give you delicious breakfasts but also inspire you to help reduce the impact on the planet.
