 OUR WHY 

What does foodprint refer to?

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.
