Good Food Award

This award, sponsored by New World, will be presented to an organisation that is transforming the food system to create a positive impact on people or the environment.

Good Food is safe, healthy, nutritious, affordable and produced in a sustainable way. It contributes to local economies, reduces waste and inefficiencies, and protects water, soil and biodiversity. It is transparent about where it comes from and how it is produced. It also enhances cultural food practices and seeks to ensure that everyone has access to good food.

Technology and innovation are helping us to improve our food system for a better New Zealand. And businesses have a vital role to play, through the way food is produced, made, distributed and sold.      

This award will be presented to an organisation that is transforming the food system to create a positive impact on people and/or the environment.

Enter if you are working on solutions to issues in the food system such as reducing food waste, improving food literacy, helping your community have access to healthy food through regenerative agriculture or organics, new distribution models, packaging, whole systems thinking, or through work on resilient and equitable systems.

We asked New World what inspired them to sponsor the Sustainable Business Awards: 

“We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Good Food award – it’s such a great opportunity to recognise the innovative work businesses are doing to transform food systems and have a positive impact on our people and environment.

New World is proud to support businesses choosing not to perpetuate ‘take, make, dispose’ approaches that generate waste and rely on an endless supply of raw materials, instead operating in a way that protects the sustainable future of this beautiful place we get to call home.

We look forward to learning about and celebrating the innovative solutions operated by the businesses who enter these awards.”
