I had the pleasure of trying some of these delicious treats at the Vegan Xmas Food Stall in Galway recently. I love my guilty pleasure after my dinner each day and, I don't want to eat a substitute that doesn't give me the same satisfaction! I am always on a mission to eat cleaner while at the same time eating tasty food!

In 2012 the world produced over 100 million tonnes of food wastage annually, it is expected to reach 120 million tonnes or above well before 2020.

In financial terms that is on average €700 per annum.
