Help Combat Climate Change By Reducing Food Waste

ZWILLING’S FRESH & SAVE Vacuum Food Storage

A report by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reveals that food waste is responsible for 10% of global emissions. This statistic is also applied by the UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2021 who estimates that “8-10% of global greenhouse emissions are associated with food that is not consumed.” Food is usually wasted either because it has gone past its use-by date or because too much was cooked in the first instance. By changing our cooking and eating habits, everyone can do their bit to reduce waste and reduce the amount of food sent to landfill.

One of the simplest ways to make a change is to use ZWILLING’S FRESH & SAVE vacuum food storage. Thanks to these vacuum sealed boxes and bags, food can be kept fresh for up to five times longer in the cupboard, fridge or freezer. This method of preserving and storing food locks in natural nutrients, vitamins and minerals without losing freshness and flavour. Use the containers for fresh ingredients, packed lunches, leftovers, batch cooked soups, sauces, stews, chills and casseroles or to portion out meat, fish, vegetables and fruit for the week ahead.

According to research by CNN Business, about 2.5 billion metric tons of food is wasted around the world every year and this is having a massive impact on climate change. What’s more, figures indicate that 40% of all food produced goes uneaten. To help cut back on food waste at home, ZWILLING’s FRESH & SAVE vacuum storage boxes and bags can be used for everything from leftovers to seasonal produce, packed lunches and batch cooking. The process works by using the vacuum pump with the glass or plastic boxes and bags. Simply pop ingredients, produce or leftovers into a FRESH & SAVE container then suck the air out using the wireless smart pump and store in the fridge, freezer or cupboard for another day. Vacuum sealing not only keeps food fresh for up to five times longer but it also helps preserve flavour, vitamins and nutrients for fresh, tasty dishes any day of the week.

Pre-prepared dishes can be re-heated and placed straight into the oven up to 180°C {with lid removed} if using one of the glass boxes. As well as plastic and glass boxes, there is also a compartmentalised lunch box, a gratin dish and BPA-free vacuum bags ideal for portioned fruit, vegetables, meat or fish.
