In Australia the annual food waste bill is estimated at $20 Billion. Government studies show 289 kilos of food per person, per year, go to waste. And based on these figures, Australia is the world’s 4th highest food waste country per capita. Executive Chef Leo Gstrein shares his passion for zero waste cooking, while demonstrating how easy it can be to cook at home.

As the market leader in food and support services both globally and here in Australia, we have a huge responsibility to drive positive change.
