    The true ‘paddock to plate’ impact of food waste

    Do you know how much energy it takes to prepare your dinner?

    You may think eating fish fingers is as easy as popping them under the grill, but just how much energy was involved in their manufacture?

    The short movie ‘Supervalue’ begins with ocean fishing and follows the process of making and cooking a fish finger. It covers all aspects from catching the fish, through to transport, manufacturing, assembly, refrigeration, transport, storage in the supermarket, purchase, refrigeration, cooking and then finally – the throwing away of the fish finger!

    This excellent film shows the true ‘paddock to plate’ impact of food waste.

    ‘SuperValue’ was a co-Production between Film Australia, SBS Digital Media, the New South Wales Film and Television Office and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, in association with We Are What We Do.
