Stories about the food we don't eat...

Welcome to Issue 32

Despite the global pandemic, our researchers and industry participants continue to achieve exciting results in their research. For example, RMIT Industrial Design students have been working with Y-Waste and Foodbank on redeveloping the app to distribute end-of-day retail food ... not only have they managed to continue their work, but one student project took out the industrial design 2020 RMIT Adobe UX Award!

For those working in developing countries, ACIAR is looking for new concept ideas to address the challenge of reducing food loss in developing country value chains. The program is investing $3million for up to four projects and is part of ACIAR's strategic agricultural research that will have a potential breakthrough / transformative impact on food security into the foreseeable future.

Projects
Just this week, Project Leader Emily Mantilla from participant Honey and Fox, released the results of our Australian food industry training needs analysis to members of the Industry Connection Hub

"Food businesses from across the supply chain, large and small, have told us what training they need to reduce, transform and engage better with their food waste, said Emily.

"Most importantly, a general food waste training course for business should kick off a much wider training program of identified training needs, like how to audit food waste in their business.

"Then, they need short micro-training to support them on their learning journey to make changes in their business. 

"We can’t wait to share more once the final report is approved by the CRC."
