InSinkErator® food waste survey

View image of InSinkErator® food waste surveyA national survey, commissioned by InSinkErator®, has found that in a year parents serve, on average, 1,460 evening meals to their family and end up throwing the equivalent of more than a quarter of those meals in the bin.

The poll of 2,000 parents found eight in 10 regularly end up throwing away some of their children’s uneaten meals, with dinner the meal most likely to see wasted food.

The study showed 45 per cent of those polled blame the wasted food on their children being fussy eaters with 57 per cent admitting they have put a meal in front of their child, only to have them completely refuse to eat it.

Denise Iordache, Marketing Manager, Europe and Russia, InSinkErator® says: “We conducted the national survey to enable us to understand if family eating habits have an effect on food waste in the home, and how we can hope to reduce food waste that is directed to landfill from their homes in the future.

“The survey revealed that one of the top 10 things people would like to have at home, to help with food waste, is an automatic food waste bin that empties itself. Despite our very best efforts to reduce food waste in the home, a small amount is inevitable, and many of us are faced with the difficulty of disposing of our banana skins, egg shells and food scraps. An InSinkErator® food waste disposer is a discreet asset to any home and provides households with a safe, simple and effective way to dispose of food waste in a convenient and hygienic manner, re-directing food waste that would usually be sent to landfill sites. ”
