In the European Union, 100 million tons of food are thrown out in a year. The most important reason for this is the foods with an expiry date (SKT). SKT is actually a date recommended by the manufacturer. As soon as this date passes, the food product is not miraculously spoiled. SKT is mostly determined as a date close to the date when the flavor and type of that product started to change. You can help reduce food waste and protect the environment if you start to adopt the 'first-in-first-out' rule by placing the earliest products on the front, using a new method in your refrigerator or kitchen shelves. You can freeze the fruits and vegetables that you will not consume in the near future. You can add the fruits that you think are too ripe to your cakes, and you can make pickles with vegetables. In short, we have to reduce food waste, both economically and environmentally. Consumer awareness should be increased in food waste and necessary sensitivity should be created. Do not forget to do your best in this regard.
