Best Foods: Food Waste Warriors
Food waste is a major issue both in New Zealand and across the world and Best Foods is helping Kiwis to take on the challenge of reducing food waste to save money and the planet.
Approximately 157,389 tonnes of food are going into landfill in New Zealand every year – that is equivalent to 271 jumbo jets of food that must go somewhere to rot, instead of being eaten. As a nation, we waste $3.1 billion a year on food that we buy and then throw away uneaten.
Are you ready to tackle food waste?
The Best Foods Food Waste Warriors are ready to put you through your paces, so you can save money and the planet!
Kick off the challenge and over the next two weeks The Food Waste Warriors will be serving you up five food saving challenges including planning your meals, storing smarter, making the most of your leftovers, composting, and paying it forward to families in need. You’ll also get yummy recipes, tips and tricks, and a chance to score a grand prize of a Simplify My Home pantry and fridge storage makeover!
Each week we will be running giveaways on our Best Foods NZ Facebook, where you can test your knowledge to win a fridge storage pack, compost caddy & bin, produce & market bags, storage containers, or even supermarket vouchers!
