Research into community knowledge, attitudes and behaviour reveals community education is the key to avoiding food waste.
To better understand community knowledge, attitudes and behaviour in relation to household food waste, 1,200 NSW households were surveyed in 2009. This study was conducted again in 2011, 2012 and 2015-16.
The latest report shows 97% of people in NSW practice at least one food waste avoidance behaviours and that concern about food waste is on the rise.
The latest report is now available
