The Government funded Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) is working with consumers to help them save money and reduce household food waste. WRAP’s Love Food Hate Waste campaign offers information and ideas on reducing food waste. Under the voluntary Courtauld Commitment, we have encouraged industry to adopt innovations that benefit consumers, such as re-sealable salad bags, re-sealable baked bean jars, leftovers recipe ideas and the production of smaller sized loaves of bread to suit smaller households. We also clarified date labelling guidance in 2011 to make labels clearer so that people are more confident about what they mean and how long food is safe to eat.
