Use It Up Tape Impact Study

Latest research from BehaviourWorks Australia shows OzHarvest’s Use It Up Tape is a simple yet powerful solution in the fight against food waste. The latest study showed households using the tape reduced food waste by 40% and halved waste of fresh produce like fruit, veg, dairy and meat.

Use It Up tape is used to mark a shelf the fridge or pantry, or placed on food containers. It’s a visual reminder of what food needs using up and a versatile tool for reducing food waste in the home.

This National Policy Agenda was adapted from OzHarvest’s submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry on Food Production and Supply in NSW.

To support an effective campaign, new research was required to better understand the complex nature of household food waste.

Collaborating with BehaviourWorks Australia, this research represents an innovative and pioneering approach to tackling the food waste challenge in Australia, using evidence-based decision-making to prioritise and diagnose consumer behaviours.
