About Us

A Bitter Truth

Did you know that in 2022 alone, Australians discarded a staggering 7.3 million tonnes of food waste? That’s equivalent to every Australian throwing away three full shopping bags of food every single week! The worst part is that 70% of this food has been deemed perfectly edible! Not only is this food waste bad for the environment it also costs Australians billions!

The Environmental Toll

When food decomposes in landfills, it releases methane, a greenhouse gas more potent than carbon dioxide. In fact, food waste is responsible for generating around 6.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide! While this number might be hard to put into perspective all you have to do it trust us when was say it’s a lot! Food waste not only contributes to climate change but also has detrimental effects on our precious ecosystem!

Economic Impact

Apart from the environmental repercussions, food waste hits us where it hurts the most – our wallets. 

On average, The Australian economy looses over $36 billion worth of food each year. Just picture the incredible causes this money could have been put towards instead!
