Let’s Fight Food Waste

Australia, we have the power to make it happen. Our nation produces a staggering 7.6 million tonnes of food waste each year from farm to fork, costing the economy $36.6 billion, filling up landfill and wasting precious resources. That's 7.6 million tonnes too much. We need change and government action. If you want to end food waste going to landfill sign the petition today!

Make it easier to waste less

The Government has the power to introduce some key changes which could drastically cut the amount of food waste ending up in landfill:

  • Shake up the food labelling system and end consumer confusion over best before and use by dates
  • Ensure that businesses are signing up to measure and reduce their food waste
  • Encourage farmers to donate more surplus food by introducing a National Food Waste Tax Incentive
  • Stop food from going to landfill by speeding up the roll out green bins for households and invest more in organic waste processing infrastructure.
