Food waste is a massive issue, both at home and in professional kitchens, and with fridges still bulging post-Xmas, now is a great time to audit your food storage knowledge.
Do you pay enough attention to where you place things in the fridge? For example, are you aware the lower part is colder and thus more suited to raw ingredients, as opposed to leftovers?

Take a look at the infographic below, which also contains some useful tips for how to hack and extend the lifespan of certain foods, as well as how to grow your own from scraps, and start cutting back on food waste – saving the planet and yourself money in the process.
