Food waste across four key products – potatoes, bread, milk and chicken - has dropped by around 34% since the start of the UK's coronavirus lockdown.
That's according to a new survey of more than 4,000 participants conducted by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), which suggests households have adopted a range of new 'food-smart behaviours' and have created significantly less food waste during the stay-at-home period.
The poll reveals nearly a third of UK consumers are cooking more creatively during the lockdown, while 30% have started saving leftovers to eat the next day, rather than binning them.
