Finding Value In Food Waste Wednesday 29 June 2016 Sheffield Hallam University

Estimates suggest 5 million tonnes of food is wasted by manufacturers and retailers every year in the UK, with companies paying premiums to incinerate it or send it to landfill.

But in many cases it can be repurposed, realising value and creating new, often high-worth revenue streams. Yorkshire and the Humber is one of the best places in the world for innovation on biowastes, including food waste, with its outstanding combination of bio-based research, industry and agriculture. This Insider breakfast meeting will hear from a panel of businesses and academics leading the world in waste recycling science, along with energy experts and supply-chain companies hoping to seize on the opportunities of green technologies.
