The Great Australian Waste

RaboDirect Financial Health Barometer 2016 - Infographic header
Every year, Australians scrape $10 billion off their plates into the garbage. We’re not only wasting food but the resources that went into producing that food and the hard earned dollars used to pay for the goods. That’s the bad news. The good news? Through some easy steps and small changes, Aussies can minimise waste, and start saving more money.

This year, RaboDirect’s 2016 Financial Health Barometer surveyed 2,300 financial decision makers, aged 16 – 65, measuring attitudes towards food and waste, savings and debt, weekly grocery spend, as well as how much Aussies know about the journey of their food from farm to plate.
