As global demand for food increases, we should avoid throwing away consumable food. Householders should ideally only generate food waste that is inedible such that the environmental and financial costs of food production are fully used. Identifying means to alter householders’ food waste behaviour has clear potential benefits. The composition of avoidable food waste offers insight to how interventions might reduce avoidable food waste. Do such interventions make a difference? When the effects of avoidable food waste on the environment or personal finances were highlighted to householders, neither message made an impact on the quantity and composition of avoidable food waste they produced, regardless of income. We may have to seek other solutions; initiatives to reduce food waste may be more successful if focused on positive actions to improve householders’ efficiency in their food use. View this paper
