15.11.2023 Press release
Food waste is a global challenge that requires solutions at every level, from our kitchens to farms and businesses. But how can we achieve meaningful change on a large scale? This is the theme of our upcoming event, hosted by EIT Food, Europe’s leading food innovation initiative, and Paulig, an international food and beverage company. Participating in the webinar are representatives from the European Commission, EIT Food and Paulig, as well as industry leaders and sustainability experts.  

The primary goal with this webinar is to showcase and inspire companies, stakeholders, and decision-makers on how innovative collaborations can effectively combat food waste. In doing so, we aim to contribute to the food waste targets set by the European Commission and improve business simultaneously.

We invite you to join us for an in-depth exploration of innovative strategies and the implications of the European Commission's proposal to set legally binding food waste reduction target.

During the event, you will have the opportunity to engage in conversations with startups and industry experts who share a common goal: to drive systemic change for a more sustainable future.
