I am just writing this quick post as a response to my food waste at Christmas post from a couple of weeks ago. I popped into my local supermarket yesterday to stock up on lemonade and such and noticed the mountains of food on offer. After investigating food waste over the past month, I found myself more aware of all the bright yellow reduced stickers on boxes of canapes and desserts.
After hoping that customers would bulk buy for the approaching Christma-pocalyse, there was a serious amount leftover! Mothers (including my own!) took advantage of the freezable items, but I am still curious of how much of this will still end up in the bin!
|Ready made mash - have locals taken to|
making their own this year?
|I was shocked to see that supermarkets had|
even over estimated the amount of milk
to buy in for the Christmas rush!
|Whoops indeed: Even local food from Conwy was on offer. |
Couldn't resist this one - meatballs are in the slow cooker as I type!
Spaghetti meatballs for tea!
