Az Agrár Marketing Centrum szervezésében szeptemberben tartották az idei Országos Mezőgazdasági Kiállítás és Vásárt. Az OMÉK 2017 elsődleges célja, hogy szakmai szempontból bemutassa a fejlett, hatékony, környezettudatos vállalkozásokra, családi gazdaságokra, kis- és őstermelőkre épülő mezőgazdaságot, és annak értékeit, eredményeit megismertesse a szakmával és a nagyközönséggel. Az esemény kiemelt témája volt élelmiszerpazarlás elleni küzdelem.

The Hungarian pilot working platform (PWP) meeting was organised in a conference form in line with the National Agriculture and Food Exhibition and Fair. The event took place in September 2017 and the main organizer was the Agricultural Marketing Agency. The primary objective of the event was to present professionally the development of advanced, efficient, environmentally conscious businesses, family farms, small and primary producers, and introduce its values ​​and results to the profession and to the general public. One of the main focus points of the event was the fight against food waste.

A projekt fő célja, hogy a "termőföldtől a tányérig" megközelítés jegyében élelmiszer-hulladék csökkentő tevékenységeket dolgozzon ki a zöldség-gyümölcs ágazatban. Ez az egy általában nem túlságosan hosszú ellátási lánc, mivel feldolgozás nem része a folyamatnak, ez bizonyos szempontból megkönnyíti a helyzetet. A projekt elsősorban az alacsony minőségű termékre fókuszál, melyeknek a fogyasztókhoz történő eljuttatását mind  kereskedelemi (értékesítés) és nem-kereskedelmi (adományozás) csatornákon keresztül tervezzük tesztelni.

The Hungarian Pilot Working Platform initiated and started executing the pilot project “Ugly but tasty” pilot project in February 2017.  The main goal of the pilot is to start working on “farm to fork” approach food waste related activities in the fruit & vegetable sector. This chain is one of the shortest chains as processing is not part of it, thereby we can relatively easier focus on the full chain from production to consumer.

The main focus of the project is on the lower quality products, where the plan is to test possible channels for both on a marketed (sale) and a non-marketed (free redistribution) basis.

The goal of the workshop is to find ways on how to establish, foster and maintain long-lasting transnational cooperation between relevant stakeholders.

A new digital network has been launched to encourage collaboration and bring together expertise from across Europe and beyond in a focussed response to the global issue of food waste. The Community of Experts (CoE) aims to help drive action at every level of the supply chain by empowering individuals, organisations and nations through the sharing of skills, knowledge and resources needed to act against food waste.

The report presents a summary of the first official food waste monitoring in Flanders at chain level and for each step in the agri-food chain. It also explains the framework, objective and approach of the monitoring. 

The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) 2017 will take place from 18 to 26 November, with awareness-creating actions about sustainable resource and waste management taking place all over Europe. In the spotlight of the EWWR is to raise awareness about how to reduse waste, how to reuse products and recycle materials.

The Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge 2 Infoweek will take place in Brussels 14.-17. November 2017. The week-long event brings together infoday, brokerage, dissemination with a focus on digitisation and a high-level bioeconomy policy event. REFRESH will be presented at the "Bioeconomy Village" during the policy days on 16.-17. November.

All 26 REFRESH partners gathered to discuss midterm progress in the project and build synergies between work in different parts of REFRESH. The meeting took place in Budapest on 07. and 08. September 2017.
