Despite my experience and knowledge of the food and catering industry, even I watched in horror at last nights documentary on TV…
The Great British Waste Menu: A programme following four of the nation’s top chefs – Angela Hartnett, Richard Corrigan, Matt Tebbutt and Simon Rimmer – as they journey deep into the heart of Britain’s food waste problem, exploring how and why the nation throws away and reject huge quantities of perfectly edible food. (available on BBC iPlayer until 01-09-2010)
I can understand why it happens but not why we let it happen? Come on people lets all change our ways and in so doing, we may force the retailers to change theirs!
How can we let this type of thing happen when there are people starving in the world 😦
