Did you know that a third of all food we produce is wasted from farm to fork? We have an opportunity in New Zealand to lead the world in sustainable food production and work towards - He taonga te kai - an Aotearoa where food is valued, not wasted.

We are excited to share that our CE Angela Clifford has been announced as a new NZ Food Waste Champion of 12.3 @nzchampions123. She joins a 12 strong team of leaders from across all levels of the food system.

Angela also brings a unique perspective from across various aspects of the New Zealand food and beverage landscape, and sees massive opportunity for food system change to help support the issue of food waste.

New Zealand’s Champions of 12.3 are a coalition of representatives from across the food supply chain, championing Aotearoa's progress towards halving food waste by 2030. They consist of executives from large retailers, small start-ups, food rescue charities, membership organisations and more.

New Zealand’s Champions of 12.3 have made the following commitment:

Championing the global Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3: to halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses by 2030; by:

SHOWCASING the opportunities for food waste reduction within the Champions 12.3 and beyond;

ADVOCATING to government for enabling conditions for food waste reduction, particularly to adopt SDG 12.3;

ACTION by accelerating progress and aggregating action around food waste reduction in Aotearoa.

• Stop Food Waste Day was held on the 28th April 2021, where NZ Food Waste Champions 12.3 launched their Food Waste Reduction Roadmap, which identifies solutions at each stage of the food supply chain to tackle food waste.

The report was built on discussions from NZ’s first Food Waste Summit last month, run by WasteMINZ and NZ Food Waste Champions 12.3 and includes an overview of Primary Production; Processing; Retail; Hospitality and Household.
