Are you an Over Provider or an Under Planner? New research identifies food waste personas

A thriving, efficient and sustainable food industry is central to Australia’s economy, regional job security and prosperity, yet 25% of all the food we produce goes to waste.

Our vision is an Australia without food waste

The Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre brings together industry, research, and the community.

Winning this fight will save Australia $20 billion per annum; it will reduce food waste, increase industry profitability, and improve food rescue to deliver economic, social, and environmental benefits for Australia.

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