Food waste is a monumental challenge that affects everyone in the food value chain.

To find solutions to the really big issues – we have to collaborate.

Our goal is to halve Australia’s food waste by 2030. This benefits everyone – your business, federal and state governments, environments, food and drink businesses across the supply chain and all Australians in their daily lives.

You, your business, suppliers and customers, governments and other partners working together can help make this happen.

What is the Australian Food Pact?

The Australian Food Pact is a multi-year commitment by the businesses who grow, make and sell our food to reduce food waste.

A voluntary agreement brings together organisations in pre-competitive collaboration to develop and share solutions and implement change at scale.

Businesses are supported by our passionate team of experts to develop tailored food waste action plans focusing on preventing food waste in the first place, donating surplus good food, and supporting food chain transformation and innovation.
