The Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre’s Industry Connection Hub has launched an important survey in a bid to ascertain new training programs and innovative education delivery mechanisms to Australian food businesses in regard to food waste.

We have asked all those interested in helping food businesses reduce food waste to get behind this important initiative, actively take part in the survey and promote it far and wide as it is a critical first step in gathering information on what are the training opportunities and what knowledge gaps need to be filled for Australian food businesses throughout the entire supply chain.

The survey had a focus on four key areas:

  • Opinions about where food waste is generated most in different parts of a food business
  • What areas of training industry think will have the biggest impact on reducing food waste in their particular business or sector
  • What training already exists in Australia or overseas that could be adapted or updated to make it more current or Australian-focused
  • How the Australian food industry would like training solutions and innovations delivered to them

Results of the survey are coming.
