New Zealand Food Waste Champions 12.3 Trust
New Zealand Food Waste Champions 12.3 Trust is committed to progressing Aotearoa New Zealand toward halving food waste by 2030 in alignment with SDG 12.3. Our mission ensures we are strategically advocating to inform policy, enabling evidenced solutions and connecting the sector for collaboration.
The Champions of 12.3 are a coalition of leaders representing the food supply chain who volunteer their time to our kaupapa. We deliver projects such as the national food waste definition, New Zealand’s food waste reduction roadmap and food waste sector map and co-host the National Food Waste Summit.
Kai Commitment is a Voluntary Agreement for leading food businesses to reduce food waste and related emissions in their business and through collaboration for supply chain impact. This programme has been supported by the Government until June 2026 and has the commitment of 7 of New Zealand’s largest food companies.
