For millennia, humans have dreamed of accessing food more easily. In a few short centuries, we've gone from living in harmony with nature to industrial, globalised food systems, and the separation of our homes from our food sources —by design.
But is it really a surprise? Buying food grown thousands of kilometres away from home means many of us don’t see the environmental impact of what we eat, and in just a few generations have lost much of the local knowledge of how to grow our own food along the way.
After centuries of engineering, what we eat is neither better for us, nor the nature we've disrupted to extract it.
Food on the average Aussie dinner plate has travelled 2400-4000km to get there. Often wrapped in plastic and refrigerated to death.
As demonstrated by COVID-19, bushfires, mouse plagues, heatwaves and floods, our food supply chains are easily disrupted and unsustainable too.
Agriculture is the 3rd largest contributor to Climate Change. Wild ecosystems are being dismantled to feed our cities across the world.
50% of all food produced is wasted. 75% is sent to landfill from our homes. 25% never leaves the farm.
If Global Food Waste were a country, it would be the World's 3rd largest Greenhouse Gas producer
