Storing your food properly is one of the most important steps to reducing your food waste.
Simple habits like putting new foods to the back of the cupboard, or hanging your bananas away from the fruit bowl can have a huge impact on how much of your food ends up in the bin. Clever tools like a box in the fridge for those ‘eat me soon’ foods and a freezer whiteboard can help make good food storage easier. Importantly, correct storage also plays a vital role in maintaining the nutritional value of food and ensures it will be safe for consumption.
Time, temperature, humidity and light are the main factors to consider when storing food.
