Rabobank and Saveful.com Release 2024 Food Waste Report on World Environment Day

Saveful.com 2 mins read

To help Australians understand the impact of food waste on the environment and wallet, Saveful, an innovative new app helping Australian families to save money and food, and Rabobank, a global leader in food and agribusiness banking, have partnered up this World Environment Day to launch the 2024 Food Waste Stats, including insights and solutions to help mitigate this ongoing worldwide food waste challenge.

Tackling food waste, one carrot at a time

The 2024 Food Waste Stats highlight the ‘most searched’ ingredients in the app with carrots topping the list.

Search results for carrot recipes provide users with risotto, bolognese, fudgy brownies, muesli bars, rice balls and ‘everything fritters’ to name a few of the recipes to divert carrots from being thrown in the bin.

Other popular searches include chicken breast, eggs, zucchini and broccoli.

 

Kim McDonnell, Saveful CEO was excited by the genuine impact the partnership will play in helping families to save food and save money.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Rabobank and value their commitment to helping families to save food and money, whilst connecting the farm to fork message. The app also includes a number of food and farm fun facts provided by Rabobank to help Australians understand and appreciate the effort and resources that go into creating our food. As an example, did you know it takes two years to grow a pineapple?”

Kimberley Silva, Rabobank Senior Brand and Engagement Manager, said “As a food and agribusiness bank, we want to help consumers maximise their food, waste less, and save money in the process. We are committed to helping Aussies understand how food gets from farm to fork and tackling the global food waste challenge together. We’re also really proud of the fact that 100% of Rabobank deposits support Australian agribusinesses.
