In grocery stores, some of the food that is reaching its best before date (usually by a week to a few days) is thrown out (while some may be donated). The food in the landfill gets buried by other garbage and without oxygen, it starts to release methane gas, which leads to major environmental damage.
ONE-THIRD of all food produced each year is WASTED. That’s 1.3 BILLION tons of food every year that is not eaten and instead, ends up in the landfill. Yikes!
Flashfood is empowering its shoppers to be the change. By buying food through Flashfood, you are a leader in this movement. Together, we’re reducing food waste and its negative impacts on the environment.
