REFRESH is pleased to announce that online registration is now available for the Food loss and waste reduction and management course that we have co-created with the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ-CIHEAM) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
 

One of Japan’s top ecofeed experts will join European experts in a panel discussion to weigh the economic, environmental and safety risks of (a) continuing under the current ban on feeding surplus food that contains meat to omnivorous livestock, or (b) adopting legislation that permits the production of pig feed from heat-treated food surplus produced in specialist licensed plants, inspired by the Japanese ecofeed industry.

This workshop will discuss policy options to influence and reduce food waste on the consumer level. The workshop takes place within the EU research project REFRESH, kindly hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture. It will bring together policy makers and experts from research, NGOs, business and marketing agencies.

Interactive working group in Amsterdam: How can Voluntary Agreements between food value chain stakeholders be a key policy instrument for food waste reduction?

The goal of the REFRESH Final Conference will be to showcase the results of the REFRESH project and spur future action on food waste among business, policy, research, and civil society. 

The Dutch REFRESH national platform "Taskforce Circular Economy in Food" will organise an interactive event for TCEF Members, Dutch Champions 12.3 and international frontrunner organisations. Using “Appreciative Inquiry”, the participants will share experiences and best practices, and develop new plans for action to contribute to the SDG 12.3 target by 2030. 

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.

This workshop presented and discussed preliminary findings on opportunities for improving EU policies relevant to food waste prevention and valorisation and explored short- and long-term strategies with stakeholders. It was directed at policymakers and high-level experts in food waste from business, research, and civil society. 

The REFRESH Food Waste 2017 Multi-stakeholder Conference took place on the 18th of May at the Umweltforum in Berlin, Germany. The Conference brought together leaders in food waste prevention, reduction and valorisation. REFRESH partners presented the latest results and ongoing work of the REFRESH Project. Documentation of the conference including proceedings and presentations are available for download.

On May 19th food waste stakeholders met for an interactive Food Waste Innovation Incubator Day. The workshop followed the the REFRESH Food Waste 2017 Conference on 18th May.
