8,490 tonnes of food waste this Easter
A staggering 8,490 tonnes of food is destined to go to waste this Easter according to the research. This includes an estimated 6.8m hot cross buns weighing in at 550 tonnes and costing £2.6m.
Unnecessary Easter food waste contributes to the 25 million tonnes of carbon emissions associated with food waste in the UK – the same as produced by 10 million cars.
Here's a great tip if you have too many hot cross buns, if they start to go dry, make a bread and butter type pudding out of them https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/hot-cross-bun-butter-pudding ... yummy scrummy 😋
I don't think I will have any problems with left over hot cross buns, my only worry is Morrisons will run out of their Lemon Drizzle ones, gone through two packs in a week, and got a third to get through... they will be gone by tomorrow, may need more 😁
