Households are responsible for one third of all food waste generated in Ireland. When wasted at this stage, food has passed through the entire food system and has accumulated the largest possible environmental impact. Therefore, reducing food waste at this stage is hugely important.

Stop Food Waste is a programme developed to help Irish households reduce food waste. As we all waste food for different reasons there will be different ways that each household can reduce food waste. The first thing Stop Food Waste advises householders to do is get a better understanding of the main types of food that are wasted. With this information you can start to identify the best ways that you can reduce food waste in your home.
