Nourish & Flourish makes sense in so many ways. It’s great for your business’ bottom line and reputation, it makes the weekly food shop more affordable, and it redirects surplus food from landfill.

Food waste is a big problem for society. On average, for every five bags of food you buy, one of them will go to landfill. That’s 2.5 million tonnes – or 300kg per person – of perfectly edible food going straight to the red bin.

Making matters worse, while we are throwing away enough food to fill 13,000 Olympic sized swimming pools each year, more than five million Australians are experiencing food shortages every day.

And with all that food rotting in landfills, we are harming the environment through releasing huge amounts of methane (21 times more harmful than CO2) into the atmosphere and wasting precious water.

Nourish & Flourish is about flipping the food waste problem on its head.
