A thriving, efficient and sustainable food industry is central to Australia’s economy, regional job security and prosperity, yet 40% of all the food we produce goes to waste.

A CRC to secure Australia’s food future

The Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre brings together industry, research and the community to capitalise on Australia’s food waste opportunities. Winning this fight will save Australia $20 billion per annum in food waste through increased industry profitability and reduced food insecurity, as well as enhancing Australia’s reputation as a sustainable and trusted producer of premium food products.

Through our three research and development programs, we will REDUCE food waste across the supply chain, TRANSFORM unavoidable waste into innovative high-value co-products, and ENGAGE with industry and consumers to create change.
