Food Waste Awareness Week - 6th-12th March
Turn your fridge down for Mother Earth!
DYK that millions of UK households have their fridges set too warm, causing some food to go off quicker and costing the average UK household over £700 every year1.
But here’s how you can save your bacon:
The food in your fridge could last an extra three days if your fridge is at 4℃ instead of 7℃1.
So, if you set your fridge dial to below 5℃, you can turn your leftovers into oh-so-right-overs and eat everything else at peak deliciousness.
If you’re not sure how to check your fridge, see the instructions from Love Food Hate Waste for your fridge.
