Networking symposium

De 08H30 à 18H00

In partnership with Images & Réseaux, and as part of REAMIT (an Interreg North-west Europe project) Valorial would like to invite you to a Symposium on “reduction of food waste”, on Thursday 5 November 2020, at Nantes Regional Hall in France (Loire region)

 

 

The REAMIT project proposes to adapt and apply existing innovative technology to food supply chains in North-West Europe to reduce food waste and hence improve resource efficiency.Reducing food waste is a top priority for the European Union, which is committed to halving food waste by 2030 (88 million tonnes or €143 billion of waste per year) by focusing on all stages of the supply chain.

The Audience

This event is expected to bring together 200 European players (food processors, suppliers, researchers, technical centres, etc.) involved in the fight against food waste through innovative solutions.

The event will be in French with simultaneous translation (French-English and English-French) throughout the duration of the day.

This Symposium aims to:

  • Raise awareness among agricultural and agri-food stakeholders in the challenges of food waste throughout the value chain, and offer them solutions for concrete action
  • Present the work carried out by the European REAMIT project team: research work aimed at adapting existing innovative technologies (new generation sensors, IoT, big data, etc.) and applying them to the management of the agri-food supply chain
  • Networking internationally, discovering innovative companies on the subject, while having a convivial time
