Zero waste: A methodology with a positive impact on the environment, your health and personal finances

Food waste is a global problem that affects us all. One out of every three food items produced is thrown away, and more than 50% of this waste takes place in private homes.

We can reverse this trend with a structural change in the organization of our kitchens. These are simple guidelines, but they require some initial effort and, above all, firm determination.

The clue to change lies in the professional kitchen management model. It is simply a matter of adapting this to the domestic environment.

In this online course, you will find out all the improvements you can achieve at home, by making efficient use of your resources. Together with Ada Parellada you will learn how to use ingredients based on the Zero Waste methodology.
