Food for thought? LOVE FOOD HATE WASTE
The UK is the biggest producer for food waste in the EU, according to a study published 12 August in the Environmental Research Letters Journal.

Research for the ‘Lost water and nitrogen resources due to EU consumer food waste’ study was carried out by a team based at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. It sought to quantify EU consumer food waste and the associated natural resources required for its production.

It found that around 16 per cent of all food reaching consumers in Europe is wasted, around 22,000 tonnes every year, with an average of 123kg being thrown away by every European consumer per year.

Moreover, up to 80 per cent of that waste (97kg per person per year) was found to be avoidable, with the UK producing the most avoidable waste of the six countries studied.

Romania was said to be the EU member state with the lowest recorded food waste, producing an average of around 45kg of avoidable food waste per person per year (roughly equal to an apple a day), while the UK’s figure could reach up to 153kg per year – around the same as wasting ‘a small loaf of bread a day’.

Unsurprisingly, perishable goods such as fruits and vegetables were among the products most wasted, with the study concluding that this was due to consumers not using them quickly enough, or over-buying them due to the fact that they are generally cheaper per weight than other food product groups.

Oh oh … here's a diary date for next year: GARDENERS MARKET 2nd April ... see you there!
