Australian Industry Food Waste Training Needs Analysis 2020

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.

A CRC to secure Australia’s food future

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

Our vision is an Australia without food waste.

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.
