Fridge Night Mission

Save food, time and money

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.

So far as a Fridge Night Community,
we have saved

10 Tonnes of Food

£40,944 Money

43.7 Tonnes of CO2

Impact for you and your community

Did you know that 4.5 million tonnes of edible food is wasted each year? 1

The GHGs associated with the 9.5 Mt of food waste in the UK is around 25 million tonnes of CO2e. This is equivalent to 10 million cars on the road. 2

Whilst 7 million people face hunger here in the UK. 3

At Hellmann's, we believe when food tastes good, less of it is wasted.

That's why we created Fridge Night; a program proven to help us all to be more resourceful in the kitchen, turn the food we already have into delicious meals, and so waste less.
