The poster summarizes and illustrates the REFRESH Food Waste Solution Contest.

This brochure describes the interim results of the REFRESH (Resource Efficient Food and dRink for the Entire Supply cHain) project through May 2017. REFRESH’s research into the behaviours, economics, and relationships that lead to food waste will inform future recommendations into efficient and versatile solutions to food waste at all levels of its production.

The multistakeholder conference "REFRESH Food Waste 2017" took place in May 2017 in Berlin (Germany). It brought together leaders in food waste prevention, reduction and valorisation and featured keynote addresses by Dr. Maria Flachsbarth and Vytenis Andriukaitis.

REFRESH partners presented the latest project results and ongoing work. The winners of the REFRESH Food Waste Solution Contest presented their projects. The Conference also featured an innovator fair, two art installations, an improvisational theatre performance, two real-live pigs, and a "Disco Chop" evening.

The flyer and postcards summarize the objectives and aims of the REFRESH project.

The REFRESH Food Waste Solution Contest wanted to bring much-deserved recognition to innovative solutions to the problem of food waste and encourage their spread. Anyone from Europe that has developed a food waste innovation – including individuals, organisations, start-ups and large companies – was encouraged to submit a video or visual essay about their project.
