Welcome to Week 3

Video revealing the extent of the waste of baked goods in the retail system and some of the solutions being developed.

Last Week you discovered tips and tools to help you reduce food waste at home and in your local community. Some of the initiatives that work at a community level are also effective at a national level and you’ll find out more about the organisations and movements that are driving the agenda this Week.

Watch the video to hear how governments are making it easier for companies to reduce waste and for non-profit organisations to facilitate its redistribution. There will be more detail on this later in the Week.
