Food Waste

Food waste costs Irish households nearly €1 billion every year – approximately €700 could be saved by every family in Ireland if they reduced their food waste. At Green Isle, we believe in limiting your food waste, so we’ve done all the prepping, slicing, and chopping for you. You can use exactly as much as you need, when you need it, before putting the rest back into the freezer for the next mealtime. Enjoy all the nutrition and taste with none of the food waste.

At Green Isle we believe frozen is a great way to help reduce food waste, in Ireland we waste one million tones of food each year, enough to fill Croke Park 2.5 times. This costs households €700 on average per year. Click here to follow our simple steps to reduce your household food waste.
