How Can I Reduce My Commercial Food Waste?

The Halve Waste program is focused on reducing food waste in landfill as it increases our greenhouse gas emissions and is a waste of useful nutrients.

Commercial food waste can be collected and processed into fertilisers which are beneficial in the reconditioning of soils in our farmlands. Soil health, water retention and crop yields will improve when these fertilisers are applied to land.

  • Does your business generate food waste?
  • Are you interested in having that waste become a valuable soil conditioner for farmers?
