Food waste

food waste

Each year 1.7 million tonnes of food is wasted in New South Wales and most of this comes from our own kitchens. Buying and cooking too much food, not knowing how to store fruits and vegetables correctly and wasting what we already have are all contributing factors to why food ends up in the bin.
