FIGHT FOOD WASTE COOPERATIVE RESEARCH CENTRE: NEW COLLABORATION TO TACKLE AUSTRALIA’S FOOD WASTE ISSUE

In April 2018 the Fight Food Waste Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) received a $30 million grant from the Australian Government’s CRC Program. The Fight Food Waste CRC involves 60 participants from around Australia and overseas, who collectively raised $103 million in addition to the $30 million from the CRC Program. This initiative will be an Australia-first bringing industry, government and research bodies collectively and collaboratively together to tackle the food waste problem in this country. Find out how NZ companies can get involved in the CRC program and how they can role out their own Fight Food Waste Strategy.

THE IMPORTANT ROLE THAT PACKAGING PLAYS IN MINIMISING FOOD WASTE

While the primary function of packaging is to protect its contents, the function of packaging to reduce food waste is rarely discussed. The connection between packaging design and food waste needs to be discussed more openly.  Find out how packaging companies, food manufacturers and retailers can make a difference as team members of the product-packaging design process to this issue. Learn more about award-winning Save Food Packaging design innovations that have come from Australia and New Zealand and understand how designing packaging to save food actually saves food.
