How Can We Fight Food Waste Through Innovation and Collaboration?

Mon, November 20, 2023
until Mon, November 20, 2023

Food waste is a problem that demands solutions at both kitchen, company, and farm levels. But how can we achieve this on a large scale?

Can innovative collaborations put an end to food waste and, simultaneously, make us do better business?

Delve into innovative strategies and the implications of the European Commission's proposal to set legally binding food waste reduction target. Participate in our conversations with startups and industry experts who share a common goal - to drive systemic change for a more sustainable future.

This event is arranged by EIT Food, Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, and Paulig, an international food and beverage company.
