Briefing to investigate food waste in New Zealand - Appendix B, Report prepared by Associate Professor Miranda Mirosa
Food waste is a major issue in New Zealand. As a nation, we waste an estimated $872 million worth of food a year. This represents 122,500 tonnes of food sent to landfills—enough to feed everyone in Dunedin for two years.1 Members of the Environment Committee are concerned about the waste and decided to invite briefings from various organisations and individuals to find out more about the extent of the problem and investigate what can be done to reduce food waste.
