On Tuesday, February 13th, we organised the groundbreaking roundtable event “Advancing food loss technologies and policies” at the European Parliament (Room A5E1), in Brussels.

The discussion aimed to address the causes and impact of food loss and waste, introduce cutting-edge technologies, and showcase successful case studies. Outstanding speakers spotlighted business organisations that, by implementing innovative organisational processes and equipment/technologies, are contributing to the reduction of food loss and waste; finally, we will explored EU strategies and policies addressing this critical issue.

Reducing food loss and waste is a paramount for lowering GHG emission, preventing land degradation, safeguarding  biodiversity, and ensuring food security. Food supply chains play a pivotal role through investments in the innovative processes and advanced technologies.
