Champions of 12.3 - 2020

In 2020, we launched Champions of 12.3.  The group met three times to share information and shape short-term strategic plans to showcase, advocate and take action on food waste reduction. We started work on a Food Waste Reduction Map,  

Showcasing: Our Champions have met on three occasions to share information

on their initiatives to reduce food waste and brainstorm collectives actions.  

Advocacy: Our Champions continually advocate to Government to adopt SDG 12.3 and wrote a letter to incoming Ministers post-Election. 

Taking Action: Our Champions have contributed, with other businesses, to a Food Waste Reduction Map to demonstrate solutions at each stage of the food supply chain to reduce food waste. This will be launched in March 2021.
