No Farmers, No Food

Farmers across the globe face unprecedented challenges; climatic conditions, reduced investment, trade wars and raising tariffs, evolving consumer expectations, and agricultural labour shortages.

Farmers continue to work hard to put food on our tables everyday and as custodians of the land they are front line environmentalists. Thankful4Farmers acknowledges and values Farmers for their dual role.

If 1/4 of food currently lost or wasted was saved, it would feed 870m hungry people. Globally an estimated 931 million tonnes of food goes into the waste bins of households, retailers, restaurants and other food services. 

That roughly equals 23 million fully loaded 40-tonne trucks – bumper-to-bumper, enough to circle the Earth 7 times. 

We are developing a digital tool to help reduce household food waste and helping save time, save money, save food and the planet.
