Avoidable food and drink waste costs the average household in Scotland £470 a year.
Eating local food
If something’s grown locally, it can reach our local shop or greengrocer more quickly. So it can often taste a lot fresher. A shorter supply chain also means less carbon emissions – great news for Scotland’s environment.
Why look out for local food
- It can be fresher and tastier
- It can result in less carbon emissions, helping to create a cleaner, greener Scotland
