of Tesco salad
Supermarkets are responsible for far more than what they waste [in their supermarkets and distribution centres] because they control a large part of the supply chain.
Following Tesco discovery that the average family spends 700 a year on food that is thrown away, we asked ITV News viewers, “How much food do you waste every week?”
Dawn Robson says, “I never throw away food, I write a list of meals I making that week and onl Air Max y b Air Max uy what I need .
The data shows that in the first six months of this year, 28,500 tonnes of food waste were generated in Tesco stores and distribution centres.
We all got a responsibility to tackle food waste and there is no quick fix single solution. Little changes can make a big difference, like storing fruit and vegetables in the right way.
Families are wasting an estimated 700 a year and we want to help them keep that money in their pockets, rather than throwing it in the bin.
We playing our part too and making changes to our processes and in store.

The supermarket giant has revealed food waste figures for its operations for the first time, revealing that 68% of salad to be sold in bags is thrown out 35% of it in the home.
As a result of the findings, it is to end multi buys on large bags of salad and is developing mix and match promotions for smaller bags in a bid to help customers reduce the amount they are wasting.
It is also removing until dates from fresh fruit and vegetables, using smaller cases in stores and rearranging 600 in store bakeries to reduce the amount of bread on display, with the aim of better stock Air Max control and less waste.
