Food Waste Action Week
In March each year we focus the world’s attention on an important but often unseen climate change issue: food waste.
Food Waste Action Week 2024: 18th - 24th March
Food Waste Action Week 2024 will be encouraging citizens to ‘Choose What You’ll Use’, highlighting the benefits of buying loose fruit and vegetables and inspiring people to do this wherever they can. Buying loose reduces food waste - WRAP research has shown that if all apples, bananas and potatoes were sold loose, we could save 60,000 tonnes of food waste by enabling people to buy closer to their needs.

This year, we will be working in schools; with brands and retailers; and with policy makers to make the shift towards buying and selling fresh produce simpler for everyone.
More to come soon!
