Highlighting food waste, new research from anti-food waste campaign Food Savvy has revealed that there has been a positive shift in people’s attitudes in the last year.

It comes as 60 per cent of people across Norfolk and Suffolk now agree that food waste is a major contributor to climate change, compared to 39pc last year.

With milk in the spotlight for the #MilkSavvy light installation unveiled on Lowestoft harbour, it is showcasing the three million pints of milk wasted in Suffolk every year.
