Restaurant & Catering Australia has been formally announced as one of 18 successful grant recipients as part of the NSW Government’s Love Food Hate Waste initiative delivering food waste educational programs across the state.
As part of the 12-month project, R&CA will be surveying its member businesses in NSW on their current food waste practices to establish a baseline of data before implementing initiatives to assist individual businesses with reducing their food waste footprint.
R&CA CEO Juliana Payne welcomed the new partnership with the NSW Environment Protection Authority which will have a significant impact on the reduction of food waste across the cafe, restaurant and catering sector state-wide.
“As we know, food waste is an enormously important issue which has significant implications for all individuals, households and businesses,” Payne said.
“As the industry association representing the interests of cafes, restaurants and catering businesses, we are fully committed to helping address the issue of food waste through driving educational programs across our sector.
“We are delighted to be partnering with the NSW Government to deliver educational food waste reduction initiatives as part of the Your Business is Food program to cafe owners, restaurateurs and caterers across the state.”
