Consumer refrigerator data, behaviour and waste reduction for red meat

Most consumers still check if meat is still safe to eat by looking at the use by date on the packaging. This is considered to be outdated technology, and this project will gather new temperature data for all commodities that require chilled storage, and combine this with information on consumer behaviour to set new standards of food storage and information.

Whole of beef supply chain waste mapping and interventions

This project involves actively measuring waste along the beef supply chain in Australia and implementing strategies to reduce it, in a similar way to the UK's Waste & Resources Action Plan (WRAP), which saved the pork value chain $800,000. As well as increasing trust and collaboration amongst supply chain partners, it's envisaged the project will find new sources of revenue and inform the High Value Food Program on alternative waste streams which may be transformed.
