Did you know, in the UK, 6.7 million tonnes of food is wasted per year? This totals an eye-watering £10.2 billion each year, or to put that more into perspective, £250-400 per household per year.
It’s vitally important that, as a population, we lower our food wastage. Not only for us but also for future generations to come.
Yet, how do we actually cut down on annual food waste?
Food storage is a huge factor in reducing food waste and helping food to stay fresher for longer. In fact, Bosch has taken a huge step in precision-engineering fridges to help you reduce your food waste, by including a huge range of features designed with that specific purpose in mind.
How Does VitaFresh Work?
VitaFresh works using precise climate sensors, which automatically maintain the perfect balance of temperature, humidity and air circulation.
The VitaFresh plus freshness system will guarantee that you are always provided with ideal storage conditions, ensuring that your fish, meat, fruit and vegetables stay fresh for up to 2x longer. In fact, lettuce can last up to 14 days and strawberries will last up to 5 days, therefore helping to extend your food budget.
Why Choose Vitafresh?
Keep Your Food Fresh for Longer
By choosing the Bosch VitaFresh system, you’ll choose a system that always maintains the right storage conditions, thanks to its ideal climate zones. This includes a low-temperature dry zone of around 0c, allowing you to store fish and meat hygienically in dry conditions, and a 0c moist zone for fruit and vegetables.
Due to its special sealing, the inside of the drawer will maintain optimum humidity, which you will also be able to manually adjust the humidity of the fruit and vegetable draw, helping you to fine-tune the storage and preserve both vitamins and minerals.
What’s more, FreshSense technology will ensure that your food is kept at the perfect temperature, to achieve freshness and flavour, thanks to smart sensors, constantly monitoring the environment.
No Longer Struggle to Storage Meat and Fish
Storing meat and fish can be tricky, especially as these products can easily contaminate other food in the fridge. By storing meat and fish in the bottom of the fridge, you can cut down the risk of contamination. In fact, the Bosch VitaFresh range will come complete with separate fish and meat drawers, to keep them completely separate from other foods as well as fresher for longer.
When you are grocery shopping, there is nothing more important than ensuring that you don’t purchase anything you don’t need and therefore lead to unnecessary wastage. Of course, you can make a list of your fridge contents before heading out or, if you have a VitaFresh fridge freezer, you can opt for a camera in the fridge. Then, you’ll be able to access the Home Connect App and check what you have in your fridge, anytime and anywhere!
Should you not finish a meal, that doesn’t mean that you have to throw it away! Take some well-deserved time out from cooking, whilst also reducing food waste, thanks to the optimal storage conditions for leftovers in the VitaFresh 0c compartment.
