End Food Waste Australia 

May 2024

In catering, 20% of the food served is never eaten, with real costs for businesses, for people and the planet. AFAB is a signing signatory of End Food Waste Australia and they are leading the development of Sector Action Plans as a key tool to reduce food waste through collaboration across the supply chain. This Sector Action Plan was funded by Green Industries South Australia (GISA) and developed with partners across the supply chain, including catering companies. Rawtec was engaged to collect data to provide a better understanding of food waste volumes and origins in the Australian catering sector.
