Eliminating the greatest waste.

Each year, about 1.2 trillion kg of food is lost or wasted globally. That’s nearly a half a kilogram a day for every person on the planet. Equally important, food waste is the third largest source of CO2 emissions in the world. 

The best way to get to the root cause of food waste is to find the weakest links in the supply chain.

Our technical experts will review your internal and external supply chain to find those weak links. We’ll systematically evaluate all of your food handling processes, packaging components and material handling systems to figure out where the waste is happening. We’ll also examine logistics processes, environmental impacts and transportation.

We’ll work with you to implement a plan of action that will systemically address possible food waste issues.

Foodbank
We contribute to Foodbank, the largest food collection organisation in the country, by providing in-kind support and giving our employees opportunities to volunteer.

OzHarvest
We support OzHarvest, the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia, by providing containers for food collection and distribution.

Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology
We commissioned RMIT’s Centre for Design to investigate where waste is being generated in Australia’s food supply chains and what role packaging can play in reducing it.

Enactus
We’ve joined with several of our biggest FMCG and retail clients to inspire students to improve the world through entrepreneurial action via our support of Enactus.

Consumer Goods Forum
We support the Consumer Good Forum in its effort to halve the amount of food wasted at its 400 retailer and manufacturer members by 2025.
