FOOD WASTE + LOSS Accelerator Program

December 2021 to April 2022

SDG Target 12_edited.jpg

Our inaugural Food Waste + Loss accelerator program supports 15 Australian startups (or spinoffs of existing businesses) that are solving food waste and food loss problems which will have an impact in the State of Victoria.

We are supporting purpose driven founders whose goals are aligned to Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 and who are looking to raise seed funding within the next 12 months.

UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3

SDG 12.3 has two components

12.3.1. Food Loss

12.3.2. Food Waste

 

Food loss focuses on food losses that occur up to the retail level, while food waste refers to retail and consumption waste.

 

The focus of sustainable consumption and production is about doing more with less. To do this, it is vital that we increase resource efficiency and promote sustainable lifestyles, by decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation.
