Brand new app that helps you to save £££ and waste less!

Screen shot of the new Love Food Hate Waste appHelp is at hand for anyone who wants to keep track of their budgets by food planning, shopping, making the most of left-overs and recipes while ‘on the go’, thanks to a newly-updated app from Love Food Hate Waste (LFHW).

Launched today (Wednesday, April 24th) and available for both iPhone and Android devices, the app enables users to organise a wide range of information and features, and tailor this to their own, individual requirements.

The free app offers a host of features including:

  • ‘My kitchen’ – store details of all the foods you’ve got at home in your fridge, freezer and cupboards. Add ‘use by’ reminders so you don’t waste food
  • Portion planner and a meal planning diary
  • 100s of great recipes (with new ones regularly added) with simple, step-by-step instructions
  • A feast of helpful tips and ideas from LFHW
  • Keep a record of your own creations by adding your recipes to a ‘My cookbook’ section
  • Rate and share recipes
  • Portion planner and a meal planner diary
  • ‘Shopping list’ not only tracks everything you need for your planned meals, but also alerts you if you have duplicates of any ingredients.  Instantly ‘unpack’ your food purchases into your virtual kitchen

The updated app also offers a ‘My profile’ area where users can record what they’ve cooked, culinary ‘achievements’, and, the chance to opt for connecting via Facebook or Twitter with friends and family who also use the app.

In the UK, we throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food every year, much of which could have been eaten. This good food and drink costs us around £12bn a year, and the average household could save up to £50 a month by making the most of the food they buy.

Smartphone users can download the app from Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store.
