What does foodprint refer to?
Foodprint refers to the environmental impact of food. It's the carbon footprint of what we eat. How and where the food is grown, how it gets to us and ultimately the impact that food has if it's not consumed.
Why is food waste a problem?
Food waste is a really complex and often hidden problem.
Our current food system allows for one-third of the food that’s produced to be wasted. This is due to a number of factors including overproduction, distribution problems and the mentality that all food must look perfect.
All of this while one in seven people on the planet experience food insecurity.
The majority of the food that’s wasted ends up in landfill where it is left to decompose without oxygen. This creates methane, a greenhouse gas, that contributes to climate change.
Wasting food is also a huge waste of the resources that have gone into creating that food, such as the soil, water, labour and fuel.
We aim to engage with our community to recognise food waste as a problem, and rather than keep it hidden, work together as a community, to solve it.
The Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
Goal 12: Ensure sustainable production and consumption patterns
Target 12.3 By 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses.
