Frozen Reduces Food Waste
Did you know that the world wastes around a third of the food it produces? As such, anything the individual can do to help prevent food waste can only have a positive impact on the issue of limited resources and a growing population. Freezing is one such step, and it can actually reduce in-home food waste by up to 5-6 times compared to fresh food.

Reducing your food waste by freezing can also have a positive impact on your bank balance - it allows you to simply use what you need before returning any extras back to the freezer for another time, as well as freezing any leftovers - it’s a win-win for freezing.
