The first International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste was marked in Dunedin with a display of commonly wasted foods.
University of Otago Food Waste Innovation Research Theme manager Trixie Croad created the "End Food Waste!" display, featuring New Zealand’s 10 most wasted foods.
Bread was by far the most wasted, followed by left-overs, oranges, apples, bananas, potatoes, chicken, rice, lettuce and beef.
Food from the display was donated to Dunedin food rescue charity KiwiHarvest.
The event had gone "swimmingly", raising food waste awareness, she said.
