Dianne McGrath’s mission to reduce food waste

Monday 20th April / presented by Danae Gibson

In 2016 - 2017 Australia produced more than seven million million tonnes of food waste. Individually, we send almost three hundred kilograms of food to landfill every year.

How do we reduce waste? A simulated Mars mission might bring us a little closer to a solution.

RMIT PhD Candidate, Dianne McGrath, is a food waste researcher and she recently spent some time in a simulated mission on Mars to try and understand how different situations would affect the food waste we generate.
