Our 2015 Passion for Pasta Food Waste & Sustainability Consumer Omnibus Survey* found that one in four Millennials consistently throws away food before it’s eaten and that Millennials are twice as likely to throw away their food as baby boomers. However, that same survey also revealed that four in five people have pasta regularly stocked in their pantry and rarely have to throw it away.
Our takeaway? When it comes to fighting food waste, pasta is an effective and delicious tool to have in your arsenal.
*The 3-minute, online, omnibus survey was conducted among a nationally-representative sample of n=1000 U.S. adults ages 18+ between August 7 and August 10, 2015. The margin of error for this sample is +/- 3.1% at the 95% confidence level.
