Symposium: Towards a true systems approach to reducing food loss and waste from farm-to-table

Tuesday, March 15, 2022 - 12:00pm
  • Tuesday, March 15, 2022 at 12:00pm to 4:00pm, and
  • Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Reducing food waste and loss and enhancing the sustainability of global food systems is clearly a hot topic. However, the subject is more complicated and complex than some may think. This virtual symposium will not only address different implementation ready and emerging technology solutions but also will discuss the economics of food waste and loss reduction and the implementation challenges.

The symposium is designed to provide valuable information for industry and those interested in making decisions as to how to reduce food waste and loss as well as funding agencies and academics, who would like to better understand the challenges and opportunities in this field.

Hosted by the Department of Food Science, in partnership with the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR)
