DIRECT has been developed through direct observations and input from food manufacturers
RMIT’s Centre for Design and Society collaborated with food manufacturers in the Plenty Food Group in the City of Whittlesea to gain efficiency in the resources they use.
This website and in particular the DIRECT calculation module have been developed through:
- resources audits
- on site surveys to gain a deep understanding of the processes involved to transform resources into products
- interviews of staff.
The result of this 24-month project involving 20 companies is a practical tool for food manufacturers.
