The Kitchen has set a target of eliminating food waste to landfill.

The Kitchen has set a target of eliminating food waste to landfill, so a food waste program has been developed and has three main areas; reducing waste in our kitchens, donating any surplus food we can to Kiwi Harvest, and everything else gets sent to be commercially composted.

We partner with EnviroNZ which commercially composts all The Kitchen’s food waste at the company’s state-of-the-art composting facility in Hampton Downs. Using covered aeration bunkers, the food waste is blended with green waste and composted for eight weeks before being screened, matured and sold to kiwifruit orchards and landscape yards in South Auckland.
