Research shows that we spend £3057 on food per year – and of that £420 of good, perfectly edible food is wasted. As much as we’d like otherwise, we can only do so much when it comes to raising awareness of food waste. This is where the supermarkets have stepped in – they’re at the frontline, as it were. And today a lot of supermarkets are doing a lot of work to help their customers save money and prevent food from going to waste.
