Tackling Food Waste through Emerging Technologies

About this webinar

An alarming 1.6 billion tonnes of edible food is wasted globally every year. This corresponds to about one third of global food production. But what some companies need to consider is that technology has an important role to play to help reduce the amount of wasted food. 

This inefficiency has enormous economic, environmental and social consequences. Food loss and waste causes about $940 billion per year in economic losses. We use land the size of China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan combined – 250 cubic kilometers – of water and a whole range of other scarce resources to grow food that is never eaten. If food waste were a country, it would rank as the third highest national emitter of greenhouse gases after the US and China.

As today’s consumers are now more educated than ever about the negative effects the food & beverage industry is having on our environment, players are looking for new innovative solutions to cut food waste and create a more positive brand image.

Food waste from farm to fork

Whether its intelligent sensors on packaging or turning food waste into a product, solutions for food waste are emerging and being identified across the entire food and beverage value-chain. 

From disruptive start-ups to research institutes, we will showcase innovative solutions that are currently being put under the spotlight for food waste on our Industry Insider program. For example, blockchain and AI are becoming key tech solutions for food waste such as the startup Goodr which uses an app to connect business with local charities and Ripe which is helping companies form a more transparent digital food supply chain. We will also bring forward new concepts in this space such as Apeel which is using a invisible, edible coating from wasted agricultural products to Winnow technology which recently received 12M Series B funding for its.
