She provides academic consultancy services on food waste to governments and businesses. She is the author of The Mirosa Report, written for the Parliamentary Environmental Committee, which ran a national briefing on food waste. She is the founding Chair of the New Zealand Food Waste Champions 12.3 Trust, which works to accelerate progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3 and halving food waste by 2030.
