This event will focus on several ways to use food to improve our lives: the valorization of side streams to produce safe feed thus reducing food waste, the promotion of traditional food production and use of minor cereals for a better food quality and the improvement of the food supply chain for human consumption. The event will bring together experts from research and industry from all around Europe to discuss such topics.
The EU-funded project FUSIONS has fed thousands of people on food that would otherwise be wasted in some of Europe's biggest cities. Raising awareness is part of a strategy to reduce food waste.

Its proposals could increase resource efficiency along the supply chain, cut bills for shoppers, and contribute to a sustainable food system.
