Rude Food Malmö rudefood.se - photo by www.alexanderolivera.com


Approximately 19 kg of edible food is thrown away in the garbage, and 26 kg food and drink is poured out in the sink. These numbers are per person/year. Much of the food is thrown away because it is not eaten up in time - we buy too much, forget it in the back of the fridge and throw food left over instead of eating up the leftovers.

Tips to reduce your food waste
Here are some simple advice to start with


  • Plan your purchases and do not buy more than you spend.
  • Eat the food in time - keep track of the food in the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Store your food properly.
  • Insert chilled foods, such as fresh meat, fish and dairy products, in the refrigerator as soon as possible.
  • Most vegetables and fruits last longer if kept in the refrigerator. - eat them up quickly.
  • Freezing the food that you want so they last longer.
  • Do not throw away food just because it has passed its best before date - They often last much longer. Look, smell and taste first, and dare to trust your senses.
  • Take care of the waste - make a meal, use them in a new dish or freeze.
