Love Food Hate Waste Tracking Survey

We’ve been surveying NSW households since 2009, to gain an insight into community knowledge, attitudes and behaviours about food waste. The latest tracking report shows that concerns about the environment and food waste are on the rise, with 96 per cent of people in NSW doing at least one thing to reduce their food waste at home.
