Food Waste Conference – 19th April, 10am – 1.30pm; with FREE lunch!

Food waste in Britain costs the average family nearly £700 a year!

In Greenwich that is the equivalent of nearly half a million pounds! 3.9 million tonnes of food is wasted by the food and drink industry each year, and the average business is throwing away the equivalent of £10,000 a year in wasted food.

This short seminar seeks to address some of these issues and show businesses, caterers, schools and procurement officers how to reduce waste into the bin, and ideas and opportunities of what to do with unavoidable surplus. We will also be serving a delicious lunch made entirely from surplus food.

Who should come?

  • Schools
  • All food businesses
  • Food producers and caterers
  • Individuals
  • Procurement officers

Why should you come?

  • Find out how to save money by reducing waste
  • Find out how to distribute any surplus waste you have
  • Find out how to ensure the people you work with address food waste

Hosted at the wonderful New Haddo Centre in the heart of Greenwich kindly lent to us by Greenwich West, this conference will take place on the 19th April from 10am – 1.30pm including a delicious lunch cooked up by the wonderful and inventive Made in Greenwich with surplus food donated from Fareshare.  An excellent way to spend a morning!
