The Research

OzHarvest teamed up with BehaviourWorks Australia (part of Monash Sustainable Development Institute) to understand what it takes to halve household food waste. This Australian-first research is detailed in the new report ‘Halving Household Food Waste – Which Behaviours Matter?’ 

The campaign was informed by the insights from the report, inspiring citizen action to help achieve our national target of halving food waste by 2030, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
