FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Artificial Intelligence – the solution to food waste at home.

Developers of the EatBy App have incorporated artificial intelligence into their kitchen management and grocery list app to reduce domestic food waste.

The latest release of the EatBy App includes a new feature – it automatically suggests how long fruit, veg and frozen items will stay fresh for and then reminds you to use them up before they go off. But the clever bit, according to the developers, is that the app learns the storage habits of individual users.

“Not everyone’s kitchen is the same, and different food storage environments effect shelf life. EatBy App addresses this problem by learning as it’s used over time.”

Domestic food waste is now the biggest contributor to the global food waste problem. Supermarkets have suffered the brunt of bad publicity, being blamed for massive quantities of unsold food being wasted. Many supermarkets and grocery … Continue reading

It is fantastic that this cause has been taken up by someone who is in the public eye and Hugh has also apparently hinted that Jamie Oliver will be the next celebrity to champion the battle against food waste.

Ahead of the programme, we decided to conduct straw poll on Twitter (using Twitter’s new poll feature). Again we are looking forwards to seeing the results:

Do you waste too much food? Be honest 🙂 #hughswaronwaste #wastenot #foodwaste #eatbyapp Please RT!

Do you understand food labelling & the difference between “Use By” & “Best … Continue reading

Families are throwing away good food on a weekly basis despite being on a tight budget

As many families across the UK tighten their belts in preparation for Christmas, new research by MyFamilyClub.co.uk, the money-saving and money making site for families, reveals that six in 10 (57%) households are still throwing away food unnecessarily, despite being on a tight household budget.

The main reason for throwing away food was that it had exceeded the best before date, with nearly five in 10 (45%) families stating that they throw away food because it was after the best before date despite watching the pennies each month.
This regular food wastage in the UK is leading to an annual waste bill of GBP 680 per family, according to WRAP.

Leading Chef Jamie Oliver states that it is very important to understand the difference between best before dates and use-by dates so families don’t throw away edible food unnecessarily.
