Australia is a standout producer of high-quality food that the world wants – yet one-third of all food produced is ultimately wasted.
7.6 Million tonnes of food is lost or wasted in Australia each year; which equates to 312 kg of food wasted per person.
The Federal government is addressing this serious issue with the development of a National Food Waste Strategy to halve food that is going to landfills by 2030, the establishment of Stop Food Waste Australia and the recent launch of the Australian Food Pact.
Working in collaboration with these programs is the Fight Food Waste CRC which brings together all areas of the value to chain develop, design, innovate and research ways to improve food loss and waste. The CRC provides the science-based evidence and research that the industry needs.
Stop Food Waste Australia and the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre’s vision is an Australia without food waste.
This webinar will explore the key challenges and opportunities of reducing food waste in Australia, including the important role Save Food Packaging plays, the strength of industry collaboration through the Australian Food Pact, and the latest industry and research insights.
The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is a core participant of the Fight Food Waste CRC and has developed research and Save Food Packaging guidelines for the industry.
Additionally, the AIP is a supporting signatory to the Australian Food Pact and a founding partner of Stop Food Waste Australia.
This webinar will help AIP members and the industry better understand the 2030 National Food Waste Strategy, the roadmap to meet these targets, how you can get involved in the Australian Food Pact, the Fight Food Waste CRC and Stop Food Waste Australia.
The AIP will also provide an update on the projects they are involved in.
The webinar is free to attend for AIP Members, friends and industry colleagues. To book your place today, register here.
