Join an expert panel from industry, policy, academia and non-governmental organisations to discuss the challenges and opportunities of preventing food waste across the food supply chain, from farm to fork, followed by an interactive audience Q&A. There will also be the opportunity to browse an accompanying exhibition and learn how food waste can be used to create innovative products and processes, from functional foods and active packaging to biodegradable materials, fertilisers and biofuels. You can even try a cup of soup made from surplus food!
