Hidden Harvest, est. 2015

Food waste doesn’t need be a big scary issue. Everyone eats, so everyone has an opportunity to pay attention to what’s on their plate (and what isn’t). The tastiest bit? Every bite means more than you think.

Hidden Harvest began in 2015, when our founder, Berbel Franse, returned to Australia from stint of work in Ghana, West Africa.

Hidden Harvest began in 2015, when our founder Berbel Franse returned to Australia after a stint of work in Ghana, West Africa.

Working in supply chain logistics, Berbel saw that the majority of Ghanese food waste occurred due to a lack of infrastucture like refrigeration and storage. During her time wandering around the Ghanaian marketplaces, she also saw that when the food *did* reach the Ghanaian marketplace, that nothing was left to waste. Upon returning home, Berbel learnt that just over a third of Australia’s food waste is generated in our kitchens at home. Berbel saw this as a delicious opportunity to cook up change within our community.
