In support of Government’s commitment to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12.3 – to halve per capita food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chain – SA Harvest is fighting food waste by providing companies across the full food ecosystem – from agriculture to manufacturing to distribution to retail level – with a responsive, proactive, technology-driven food rescue service at no cost.


Food waste in South Africa exceeds 10,3 million tonnes a year, while over 20 million people live in varying degrees of food insecurity every day. Feeding hungry people and stopping good food from going to waste underpins everything we do. We rescue and redistribute food to those who need it most, especially during times of increased need.

Food Waste

Fighting food waste and protecting the planet guides our work in the sustainability sector. As leaders on this issue, our goal is to advocate, inspire and influence others to halve food waste by 2030, collaborating with industry and Government and raising awareness through the media.
