Love Food, Hate Waste

Love food, but hate waste? Find out some tips for reducing some waste - and some websites to get more information!

Did you know that food waste costs New Zealand $872 million a year, with the burden in Hawke’s Bay alone totaling nearly $33 million ($563 per household)?

The ‘Love Food, Hate Waste’ campaign aims to help you prevent food waste by educating Kiwi's on:

  • Using up leftovers with yummy recipes
  • Planning meals to use up excess food
  • Making a shopping list to prevent buying too much food
  • How to store food correctly to prevent it from going bad

The Love Food Hate Waste campaign is being run by local councils across the country and all Hawke’s Bay Councils are involved.

Similar campaigns overseas have resulted in significant reductions in food sent to landfill – by 18% in the UK. Such a reduction in New Zealand would see 46,600 tonnes diverted from landfills annually.

You can follow Love Food, Hate Waste on Facebook and check out the new website for more great tips and ideas.
