On average, every Czech person throws away 57 kg of food a year. This means that for the whole of the Czech Republic it is then 600,000 tons of food waste per year. The most common reason to throw away food is to spoil it (especially vegetables and pastries). Another reason is that we cook, prepare or serve too much food. Due to these two reasons, people in the Czech Republic waste 355,000 tons of food a year.
Take away meals in your own boxes
Lightweight sealing boxes or two-piece BIO menu boxes are available for selling food outside the canteen premises. We prefer, however, to carry food in our own clean reusable containers.
