An online database, FoodWasteExplorer, has been developed to aid identification of market opportunities and better waste utilisation. It contains compositional data for agri-food waste streams. Representatives from the food industry, researchers, independent consultants, and animal nutritional experts are sought to help evaluate FoodWasteExplorer prior to wider release.
An online searchable database, FoodWasteExplorer, containing compositional data (e.g. nutrients, bioactives, toxicants) on the top 80 waste streams has been developed. It enables ready access to the biochemical composition of agri-food waste streams to aid identification of market opportunities and better waste utilisation. Usability of the tool will be tested by EuroFIR AISBL (BE) and QIB (UK) over the coming months. REFRESH partners and representatives from the food industry, researchers, independent consultants, and animal nutritional experts will help evaluate FoodWasteExplorer and ensure it is fit-for-purpose prior to more widespread release.
If you would like to be involved in testing FoodWasteExplorer, please fill out this survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DRHCGVT. For questions, please contact Angelika Mantur- Vierendeel <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
