Wasting food is wasting life

As a global brand with an eco-conscious, we take responsibility for society and our planet. That’s why we want people to enjoy good food-and respect it. One of the biggest issues: food waste.

Every year, 1.3 billion tonnes of edible food is thrown away. European households alone toss 27 million tonnes of food in the rubbish annually. That’s why the fight against food waste begins in home kitchens. As a global, eco-conscious brand, at Grundig we believe people should enjoy good food – and respect it. This means wasting less. Our commitment is reflected in our latest kitchen appliances with innovative technologies.

How much food do you waste?

Did you know that a third of the world’s annual food production ends up in the trash? That’s 1.3 BILLION TONNES of edible food wasted. It’s food that could feed 868 million of the world’s hungry. In fact, it’s 4-times the amount of food they need to lead nourished lives.
