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.
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.
