Everyone in Singapore loves food!

We spend much of our time enjoying delicious food and finding the best makan places in this food paradise. But there’s more to food than just eating. If we love our food, then perhaps we should not waste the food that we get to enjoy every day.

Food Waste in Singapore

Food waste is created in Singapore every single day from our food cycle – production, distribution, retail to consumption, and the wastage is unfortunately due to several reasons, such as food spoilage due to improper storage or handling, edible food thrown away because it does not look nice or has ‘expired’, food discards or leftovers during cooking and when we can’t finish our food, etc.

In fact, Singapore threw away about 0.68 million tonnes of food waste in 2011 and only 10% was recycled. This means on average, each person in Singapore generated about 130kg of food waste a year. Read More

Our Mission

It’s time for Singapore to take a stand and stop food waste!

So that’s why we started Save Food Cut Waste, a ground-up movement educating individuals, businesses and organisations in Singapore about the environmental and social impacts of food waste, and encouraging everyone to take action in reducing food waste.


Save Food Cut Waste is managed by Zero Waste SG.

Zero Waste SG is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation that helps Singapore accelerate the shift towards zero waste and the circular economy.
