National Food Waste Strategy Feasibility Study Update
Did you know roughly one third of all food waste happens in the home and 22% is in primary production?
This is one of many key findings as part of the National Food Waste Strategy Feasibility Study. Discover more statistics via our food waste webinar.
About the Event
FIAL remains committed in its mission to halving food waste in Australia by 2030.
We are inviting stakeholders within the food and agribusiness sector to join our National Food Waste Strategy Feasibility Study webinar, in partnership with Edge Environment and Lifecycles. This session is designed to inform participants of the latest findings as part of the National Food Waste Strategy Feasibility Study, creating awareness of current food waste issues in Australia and to provide a platform for participants to ask questions to our panel of experts.
FIAL’s project consultants, led by Edge Environment, will provide information from the Baseline Study using enhanced data, identifying ‘hotspots’ in 18 commodity groups across the supply chain and highlighting interventions likely to leverage the greatest reduction.
