OUR TIPS FOR FOOD SAVERS

Planning is key:

Careful use of foods starts with your shopping trip, or rather, with planning your shop. First of all, look at which foods you have at home, and what needs to be used up soon. If you don't have a recipe  already in mind, simply enter the ingredients at fooby.ch or in the FOOBY app and suitable recipes will be shown to you.

Don't just chuck it:

Chilled, perishable foods display a use-by date. They should be consumed by the date indicated at the latest. Less sensitive products, however, are labelled with a best-before date. If this date has passed, that doesn't mean the food is no longer safe to eat. It simply means the manufacturer no longer gives a guarantee of typical characteristics, such as flavour, appearance, or consistency.

Less is more:

lots of fruit and vegetables are sold individually and unpackaged. For loose foods, there are reusable fabric bags in almost every Coop which are a sustainable alternative to disposable bags.

Tips for fruit

Certain fruits emit ethylene. This natural gas causes other, ethylene-sensitive fruit and vegetable varieties to ripen or spoil more quickly. Because of this, they shouldn’t be stored too close together.

Prepare in moderation

Responsible use of foods is also worthwhile when cooking: ideally, you should prepare smaller portions, unless you're planning a few days ahead. When serving, it's better to come back for seconds than to leave a half-full plate.

Not too much and not too little
