Every year people from around the world come together to declare their commitment to tackle global hunger on 16 October, World Food Day. This day provides an opportunity to shine a light on food waste, our environmental footprint and most importantly the 870 million undernourished people across the planet – and reaffirm one’s commitment to ‘save good food, from going bad’ exactly like the GLAD slogan.
It is estimated that as much as a third of all food produced goes to waste, in South Africa this is equivalent to a staggering 201kg per person annually! A portion of this happens during the production cycle and is why ‘odd-shaped’ fruit and veggies are being reintroduced by some grocery stores. It is clear though, that we need to act in our daily lives to make a difference in any way we can to reduce this number.
Let GLAD help you be the hero to stop good food from going bad
For GLAD, every gram counts, and we’d like to invite you to join us in being more aware this World Food Day (and beyond), to save good food from going bad. As all GLAD products are made for your convenience with the purpose of keeping your food fresh for longer.
