What’s the perfect temperature for your refrigerator?

A refrigerator that’s too warm can cost you up to 75 euros in food waste a month

It’s always annoying when you think you have some delicious leftovers in your fridge only to open the Tupperware container and find out the food definitely isn’t edible any longer. Does this happen to you quite regularly? Then it might have something to do with the temperature of your fridge; you might have set it too high. This causes the food you put in there to go bad more quickly.

A lot of people have their refrigerator set at a temperature that’s too high.

We all want to avoid food waste since it’s such a pity, but it happens to all of us sometimes. Want to try to waste as little food as possible?

Research conducted by British food waste organisation WRAP shows that British households throw away 70 pounds (the money kind) worth of food because their fridge is set at the wrong temperature.
