Cutting down on food wastage has been an important factor in many of our lives. Although sometimes it is easier said than done. You buy the food because you swear to yourself you'll eat it, or your kids promise you they will eat it and you buy more than one. Next week you're putting your fresh groceries away and wouldn't you know there is the food you'd promise you would eat, ready for the bin because you forgot about it or the kids ate one and didn't like it. (Even after how much they PROMISED you they would eat them all and they REALLY REALLY do like them cause they've tried them before and they 'loved' them.) Well food wastage doesn't just happen at home it happens in our work places to.
As we are a sauce production company we are constantly producing pallet loads of sauce a day, whether its in foodservice buckets or retail tubs. Producing pallet loads of sauce helps us to reduce the wastage of our products and ingredients while also making it cost effective for our customers. However, some of our sauces are more popular than others and some sit in our factory storage. We then end up with products with a short shelf life that our customers don't want and we end up having to throw the products out.
