We are excited to announce our new partnership with Folláin Preserves and Stop Food Waste to look at delicious ways of preventing food waste.
Food waste costs Irish households €700 million every year, and 60% of food that is discarded can be avoided. This places huge pressure on Ireland’s resources and increases its environmental footprint. We all agree that the best thing to do with food is to eat and to enjoy it — and to stop wasting it.
Folláin is introducing an innovative range of tailored packaging across a range of new products. They have also created a new, educational website where people can learn more about how easily they can avoid wasting food.
The site showcases a range of recipe ideas and suggestions to inspire you to get creative with surplus fresh food ingredients. It also provides tips and ideas on how to improve your shopping habits to reduce the amount of food you throw away. Through join efforts like this, we can nip this problem in the bud.
