While the problem has been worsened by offer in supermarket which encourage buying in larger volumes there must be a balance between taking advantage of buying in bulk and reducing waste.

Studies by government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and non government organisations such as the UK’s fantastic help show us that wasting food is also having an effect on the planet.
