This year’s campaign, which appeared previously NFL back Jerrod Mayo Sainsfreeze takes on tackling people who waste food and offers advice on how to use surplus food instead, and aims to offer home cooks new ideas for preserving and utilizing some of the food Brits are wasting food. Items normally found in each aisle will be frozen in creative ways to help save space and preserve food for longer, thus reducing waste. From mixing thawed herbs with oil or water and freezing them in ice cube trays—perfect for tossing straight into soups and stews—to splitting ground beef and freezing flat to save space, the retailer hopes the store will help teach customers new ways to freeze food and reduce waste at home.
The available items were picked from behind research that revealed the most common items Brits discard because they are about to spoil – including milk, eggs, bread and onions – as well as other foods commonly wasted, such as bananas and herbs.

As food waste costs the average family with children around £730 a year, especially in the current climate where we are all looking for ways to save Money wherever we can, this will really help our food for longer. It would be great to see more of these programs rolled out across the country and reach more people.”
