Love Food Hate Waste Business Program
Run a food business?
Love Food Hate Waste is a free short program that will help cafes, restaurants, pubs and other Victorian hospitality venues prevent food waste, reduce costs and increase profits.
The average food business in Victoria throws away more than 100 kilograms of wasted food every week, over half of which could have been prevented. It’s not just a waste of good food and lost profits, it also wastes natural resources and piles up in landfill.
Following the simple three-step program over several weeks, Love Food Hate Waste Business will help you identify where food waste is really occurring in your business and then make changes to prevent waste before it happens.
Businesses that register will receive a Participant Kit including food waste trackers, action plan templates and other tools and resources to help them reduce food waste in their business.
Register to make food waste your business today: https://www.sustainability.vic.gov.au/Campaigns/Love-Food-Hate-Waste/Business
