Reduce Household Waste

Banquet Binned

What did wedding guests think when they heard they had just been served Bridal banquet that was heading for the landfill. It was revealed to this wedding party that the food they had eaten was not food taken from the bin; it was only heading for the bin. Still sounds odd? Would you still want to eat food that was ‘meant for the bin?’ Would you want to bin it instead?

This story was featured on the BBC and highlighted organisations that are intercepting food that would be classed as food waste and be deemed as only fit for the landfill. These creative chefs are motivated to hunt down this food waste recycling and turn it into something very special. Many stores decide they can only sell the ideal looking fruit or veg, this means perfectly edible food is rejected and becomes food waste. The banquet was so tasty that the wedding guest believed that they were fed gourmet food and they were; gourmet food waste recycling at its best!
