moving towards zero food waste

Food waste accounts for approximately 3% of Australia’s annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and approximately 70% of the 7.6 million tonnes of food waste in Australia every year is edible1. Bulla is working to achieve zero food waste to landfill in our manufacturing operations by 2030.


what we’ve achieved

Since 2013, Bulla has proudly partnered with a number of food rescue charities.

Between 2020 and 2023 Bulla donated 330 tonnes2 of surplus product to charities such as Foodbank, Secondbite, In2Food and Feed Me Bellarine, as well as to frontline workers, our staff, and local events in Victoria.

This helped Foodbank in providing approximately 1.2 million meals a month to Victorians in need. We are an active member of Dairy Australia’s Dairy Manufacturers Sustainability Council and participated in the development of the

In 2022, Bulla carried out waste audits on landfill bins at each of our manufacturing sites, we identified that of the total waste sent to landfill, 30% was food waste. This provided an immediate opportunity, and data that has informed our Food Waste Action Plan to divert food waste from landfill.

what’s next

We will continue to donate annually to our food rescue partners. Our primary focus is to eliminate food waste in our operations where we have immediate control and report against our progress towards achieving zero-food waste in manufacturing operations. Our Food Waste Action Plan details specific food waste reduction targets to 2030, and over time we’ll expand our efforts to support initiatives that help fight food waste in people’s homes.

taking action on climate change

Our goal is to reach a 50% reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions and set an emissions mitigation pathway by 20283.
