Love Food Hate Waste is a campaign, launched by the Waste & Resources Action Programme in 2007, with the aim of reducing the amount of food waste in the United Kingdom.[1] The campaign has been promoted and circulated by many green sites.[2] The campaign claims to have already helped almost two million households reduce their food waste, amounting to savings of almost £300 million and stopping 137,000 tonnes of waste going being wasted.[3] The campaign has now spread to Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

End of Use-by-date[edit]

In relation to the Love Food Hate Waste campaign, UK minister Hilary Benn announced plans to end the use of Use by date as he sees them as a major cause of food waste. There are plans to replace the use-by-date by new technologies such as Time-temperature-indicators [4]
