Food waste and the up-cycled FruitCycle

BY RIKE WOLF
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 05, 2014

 Rike Wolf, founder of the Food Rescue Initiative Townsville talks about food waste and the up-cycled FruitCycle, making tasty rescue smoothies. One third of the world's food, in rich developed countries, unfortunately is thrown out. Rike and her team are working to save all the food that is perfectly good for consumption, and donating it to those in need. To raise awareness, Rika has built a bike that can blend smoothies, which will hopefully encourage others to think before they throw out any types of food.

Our food source - local or industrial

BY AARON BROCKEN
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 20, 2015

We are what we eat...

In our business we work with local farmers from the Hawkesbury area and if possible, with local organic fruit and vegetables. The products are sourced locally and are fair trade. 

We use as less package as we can, so we reuse everything, we don’t buy anything that is made outside of Australia and we recycle as much as we can, so that the product we deliver to you has low environmental impact, low food miles and a lot of character!

Aaron was born on an organic blueberry farm that we still get produce from on occasion. He spent a big part of his youth being dragged to the Richmond community garden (Earthcare) and around NSW with his dad certifying Organic farms. As soon as he was 18 he hit the road for 7 years and visited over 60 countries on 4 different continents. He is now back and dedicated to providing a framework for a local food system to work.
