Food Loss Mapping

Food Loss Questionnaire


Food losses and waste are a significant global issue impacting approximately 1.3 billion tonnes or one third of our food supply.  Australian losses in grain, horticulture, meat, fish and seafood production were $2.9 billion in 2014-2015, with $1.8 billion attributed to horticultural losses.  This is a major waste of nutrients, energy and water which translates to loss of opportunity for industry.  Mapping of why and where the food losses occurs in the various horticultural supply chains is an important first step towards developing solutions.  CSIRO has developed this questionnaire to underpin the mapping of what losses currently occurs in different horticultural supply chains and to understand and develop a coordinated strategy to capture value back to growers, packers, processors and distributors within the supply chain.
