Emma Coath share's Rocket Seeder's story and the great work they do to mentor and support passionate people with great business ideas that can make a difference and have an impact. In this episode we zoom in to talk about food waste and food loss, about Rocket Seeder and how their business challenge and accelerator programs are helping grow the ecosystem and support people with bright business ideas to tackle the 7.2 million tonnes of food currently wasted each year in Australia. Listen in and hear about exciting startups such as Forkful, Whole and Sea Weedery.
Australia has committed to halving food waste by 2030 - a target that aligns with the SDGs. As Emma shares there's a long way yet to go but also huge opportunities along the supply chain - for consumers and for innovators to tackle not only food waste, but also to turn food loss pre-farm gate into edible food: issues exacerbated by La Nina, COVID/workforce issues, damaged crops and more.
Emma is the Managing Director of Rocket Seeder that's a nimble, innovative Australian organisation that supports startups to develop solutions to the world's biggest problems in the food and agriculture sector, including (but not limited to):
The solutions Rocket Seeder helps seed and support are aligned to United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) — all done with passion and purpose, to build an ecosystem that will have a positive impact in Australia and beyond.
