Cllr James McKay, Cabinet Member for a Green, Safe and Smart city, backs the Love Food Hate Waste campaign to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste.

He said: “The average Birmingham family could save up to £50 a month just by being a bit more aware of what food they are buying and throwing away, yet 65 per cent of people don't believe they throw any food away.

“Although Birmingham already has one of the lowest rates of landfill in the UK, reducing the amount of food waste that we throw away will help us to further reduce harmful gases from landfill and reduce waste disposal costs.

“The council is a great supporter of the Love Food Hate Waste campaign and we are extremely proud to be working with great Birmingham chefs like Glynn Purnell and David Colcombe to help promote the messages of the campaign.

“It really is amazing what can be done with unwanted food and I am sure this video will give people some real food for thought on this topic.”
