March is home to the national Food Waste Action Week – seven days where we’re all asked to think about how to reduce the our own food waste.
Created by Love Food Hate Waste, the week of action is all about raising awareness of the environmental consequences of wasting food, and promoting activities that help to reduce the amount of food we waste.
According to the organisation, around a third of the food produced globally is lost or wasted and it’s having a real impact on climate change, contributing 8–10% of total man-made greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This means anything you can do to avoid food waste will have a positive impact by helping your business to cut its carbon footprint.
At Prep and across all our AAK Foodservice brands, food waste is something we’re proactively tackling. We’ve been working on solutions to help our customers use less of our products. Yes, that’s right!
We want you to use less Prep.
This is because Prep long life frying oils are designed to last longer than standard extended life frying oil - up to three times, in fact. Using less oil will help to conserve precious resources and result in less waste oil to dispose of. It's great for business, too.
Not only is Prep the sustainable choice when it comes to less waste, the product itself is sustainability sourced – so you know you’re making a great choice.
First of all, all of the palm oil used in Prep high performance frying oils is Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified.
Secondly, Prep is produced by AAK, and sustainability written into our DNA. We believe in sustainable growth, based on the ten principles of the UN Global Compact, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and our own House of Sustainability. You can therefore be confident that Prep has been produced with care for people and the planet.
Finally, Prep high performance frying oils are supplied in a range of convenient containers, of different sizes - all of which are fully recyclable. And though you'll produce far less packaging waste if you switch to Prep, it's good to know that it can all be recycled.
We have a range of different tools on our website perfect for helping you to see how much you could save by switching to Prep, and how to choose the right kind of oil for you.
Not only this, but we are also feature expert insights as well as lots of hints and tips for how to get the most out of your frying oils – including our oil management shop, which features all the tools you need to help your oils stay fresh and last longer.
