In 2020, we launched Champions of 12.3. The group meets three times each year to share information and shape short-term strategic plans to showcase, advocate and take action on food waste reduction.
Showcasing: Our Champions have presented at four public events, co-hosted New Zealand's first food waste summit and facilitated national food dialogues.
Advocacy: Our Champions continually advocate to Government to adopt SDG 12.3, met with Minister Parker and submitted on the National Waste Strategy and Emissions Reduction Plan.
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.
We are co-designing a Voluntary Agreement for leading food businesses to reduce food waste. Launch mid 2022.
