Registration Now Open for Food Waste Webinar Series Taking Place From April to May 2019

European food waste experts from WRAP, Wageningen University, the CSCP, Ecologic, Anthesis and others will demonstrate how actors in the food supply chain can effectively address food waste in an upcoming series of four webinars on ‘Tackling Food Waste Across the Supply Chain’.

The EU research project REFRESH and its virtual resource and knowledge sharing platform REFRESH Community of Experts are actively promoting a collaborative approach to tackling food waste. To this end, we are hosting a month-long webinar series from 9 April – 2 May 2019, bringing together food waste experts from across Europe. The webinars will offer an opportunity to gain insights from case studies, ask the speakers questions and get leads for more information. The following topics will be presented:

  • Adding value: Opportunities and approaches for increasing the value of food waste and by-products
    9 April 2019 at 2 pm
  • Voluntary agreements to address food waste: A collaborative approach to reducing food waste along the whole supply chain

Nora Brüggemann, Project Manager at the CSCP, will be a speaker in the webinar session on the causes of food waste in the supply chain on 10 April. Questions that will be tackled include: How can voluntary agreements address food waste? How does the role of voluntary agreements compare to the role of legislation? What can we learn from voluntary agreements implemented in Europe?
