THE CHALLENGE

AUSTRALIA’S COMMITMENT TO REDUCE FOOD WASTE

Food waste is the largest waste issue facing the world, with the cost of landfill and environmental impact being the key concerns.

Each year billions of kilograms of food waste are sent to landfill around the planet, robbing the soil of precious nutrients which are then replaced with chemical fertilisers that reduce the taste and nutritional value of the food we eat.

In 2017, the Australian Government launched its National Food Waste Strategy. The strategy provides a framework to support collective action towards halving Australia’s food waste by 2030 and aligns with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 on food loss and waste.

enrich360’s innovative solution directly supports this strategy and adopts the circular economy approach that underpins the model waste hierarchy. It seeks to recycle unavoidable food waste into a resource, diverting it from landfill back to the soil.

THE SOLUTION

WHO WE ARE

enrich360 was founded in 2015 by Bill Kollatos, a passionate Australian food industry leader who had seen first hand the growing challenge of food waste for the hospitality and food service sector.

Bill as CEO of In2food, one of Australia’s largest fresh produce distribution companies, built on strong relationships with growers and food service outlets across Australia, seized the opportunity to galvanise those partners to lead the fight against food waste.

Committing to a more sustainable future, Bill embarked on a journey to tackle the food waste problem by engaging in the circular economy – where everyone can benefit from recovering resources, reducing landfill and replenishing farmed soil with the nutrient-rich organic fertiliser.

Approved by the ACCC, enrich360 is a unique program made up of certified members who share Bill’s vision and commitment to food waste recycling and work together to turn an everyday problem into a game-changing solution.
