Food waste is a real problem. We see it through our work with The Crafty Pickle and also in our roles as volunteers with the food sharing App Olio. But did you know that 70% of all food waste that happens after food leaves the farm happens at home?!

Now we’re not saints and occasionally we forget about a ferment that goes mouldy and have to chuck it in the compost it, or we don’t get round to eating soft cheese before it goes bad. We’re not perfect! But we’ve learnt SO much since committing ourselves to keeping our food waste to the bare minimum. Our mission with The Crafty Pickle Co. isn't just about reducing food waste within our business, we want everyone to feel empowered to reduce their own food waste. That's why we've compiled 20 handy tips for how to reduce food waste in the home and, because of this, save a shit tonne of money!!
