South Africa wastes about 10.3 million tonnes of food each year - equivalent to 40% of what is grown. This in a country where resources, such as land and water, to grow our food are under stress. In addition, the edible fraction of this food could contribute towards feeding the 13 million who routinely experience hunger in our country. Pinpoint is passionate about reversing this trend, minimising food waste and working towards redistributing nourishing surplus food to those in need.
"It has been a pleasure working with Pinpoint Sustainability on the Consumer Goods Council of South Africa's Food Loss & Waste Initiative, in partnership with the Department of Trade & Industry and co-funded by the European Union. Nicola was instrumental in formulating the food waste initiative road map, proposed budget and governance structure and proposals in partnership with Anthesis from Europe. She assisted with facilitation of various dialogues and facilitated a Food Loss & Waste Reporting Protocol workshop with retailer members of the CGCSA. It’s admirable how she always sees projects through from conception to completion. Her work ethic, team work and passion on sustainability is out of this world!" Matlou Setati, FSI Executive, Consumer Goods Council of South Africa.
