Food waste reduction roadmap for Woolworths
Supermarkets in Australia play a critical role in the food supply chain and are the primary source of food for individuals to consume in their homes. They have developed very sophisticated global supply chains that provide consumers with a consistent supply of safe, healthy, fresh and affordable food.
Reducing the amount of food waste will lower the direct and indirect costs involved for supermarkets and supply chain partners, as well as improve product availability and quality in-store. It will also increase the utilisation and value to the community of surplus food and food waste.
Keeping food waste out of landfill will provide environmental and social benefits to society, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the unnecessary use of natural resources.
As this project progresses and achieves its milestones, we’ll share the good news on this page by adding information, links, images, interviews and more.
