Introducing the Eliminate Food Loss Workshop

There are significant challenges to feeding the world. About 1.6 billion tonnes of food is wasted along the chain from farm to fork and of this, 1.3 billion tonnes is still edible. There is potential to transform food currently lost in the supply chain into a raw material supply for new value-added ingredients. CSIRO’s AIM Future Science Platform ’Eliminate Food Loss’ testbed aims to develop strategies to reduce such food loss.

Professor Alan Irwin, a world renowned social scientist from the Copenhagen Business School, is coming to Australia to share his ideas on increasing transformative innovation. In conjunction with Food Innovation Australia Limited and Hort Innovation, we invite you to join us on a journey to minimise food loss and waste in the horticulture industry. In this workshop, we focus on how transdisciplinary collaboration is essential for minimisation of food loss in the horticulture value chain.

This workshop will be held during the open day of AIM18 at the MCG on the 22 nd of February 2018. For more information please find our flyer here.
