4 Tips to Reduce Fresh Food Wastage

4 Tips to Reduce Fresh Food Wastage
20 December 2018 438 Views

Imagine $8 billion worth of food. That’s four million tonnes of edible food. Now, think about that all being thrown out by Australians every year. That’s the reality of what is happening. Australians are responsible for discarding up to 20 per cent of all their purchased food, that’s one bag thrown out for every five bags bought. New Zealanders throw out about an eighth of their weekly groceries, adding up to $1.8 million worth of food yearly. That’s a whole lot of food wastage – but it doesn’t need to be that way!


Plan Ahead

Knowing what you want to buy and planning out your meals is a great way of not buying more than you need. It also takes the hassle out of deciding what you want to make for dinner at the end of a long working day. It’s a great start to helping reduce the amount of food you throw out into the rubbish. You can also keep a notepad on the fridge with a pen and write on it anytime you run out of something in the fridge. This gives you a running shopping list! What can we say? It’s an easy one!


Buy Fresh & Keep Fresh

Buying fresh fruit and vegetables is a great way to get the healthy food into your daily meals. The first step is buying fresh. The next is keeping it fresh

There are even more ways you can reduce your food waste with the advanced technology in Beko fridges. A sigh of relief, it’s not all up to you!

Beko is helping families keep their fruit and vegetables fresher for longer with a range of innovative and advanced technologies. We can hear the cheers when families can reduce the amount of groceries they throw in the bin after a short time. After all, it’s rather frustrating to buy your fresh fruit and vegetables only to find they are no longer fresh before you actually get to eat them!

Beko fridges reduce fresh food wastage. With Everfresh+ and Active Fresh Blue Light technology your fresh fruit and vegetables will last longer. Firstly, there’s Everfresh+ refrigerator technology. It keeps your food lasting three times longer than your regular cooling technology. Next up, Active Fresh Blue Light™ which has a speciality of preserving those natural flavours and nutritional elements in your healthy food for longer. These two features mean less food wastage which we can all cheer about!

Beko is encouraging families to become more invested in their healthy eating habits and lifestyle through using their innovative technology that aims to help families in their every day. By also reducing food wastage, families will save money and not have to throw out as much food over the year. Together, we can all do our part to reduce the amount of food wastage each year.


Keeping Fresh for 3 Times Longer with EverFresh+

No need to worry about your fresh and healthy fruit and vegetables going off in a few days. With Beko EverFresh+, fruit and vegetables can sit comfortably in the special crisper compartment for up to 30 days*. Condensation is lowered through special air channels and the humidity is controlled meticulously. The temperature variations are minimised, meaning your fruit and vegetables will stay fresh and crisp for up to 3 times longer than normal*.

*Tested by SGS (compared to standard crisper for broccoli and lettuce).


Keeping the Natural Flavours & Nutrition

It’s all well and good keeping your fruit and vegetables fresh, but making sure the natural flavours and nutrients remain is important too. Luckily, when your fridge has Beko Active Fresh Blue Light™ technology, it protects Vitamin C intensity in vegetables and keeps the natural flavours and nutritional elements in your healthy food intact.

The Active Fresh Blue Light™ in your crisper means the photosynthesising of your fruit and veg can continue in the fridge. Think of it like having a greenhouse in your fridge. How good is that? Your curly kale you love (or just eat for the health benefits!) will be bulging with nutrients – and your tomatoes will stay juicy, vitamin rich and plump. Your fruit and vegetables are up to 30%* better preserved thanks to this natural magic! More time to feel smug we think!

* Tested by FRPERC and TÜBİTAK (compared to standard crisper for tomatoes, red and green pepper)
