Loving the Ugly Fruit


Do you hate the feeling of rejection? Food producers do.

Twenty percent of the food we produce in Australia is thrown in the bin although it’s perfectly edible. It’s a cost for farmers but it’s also a waste food and it might be your fault unless you can learn to love the ugly fruit.

This is one of seven podcasts produced at the Horizon Summit in June 2016 with the support of SYN Media. Young farmers and agricultural science students from around Australia convened for the summit and shared their views on the future of agriculture.

This podcast was produced by Finn Cowden, Samuel Coggins, Melissa McCallum, Katherine Bain, Roxy Mostert and Cait Daffey.
