Foodwaste reduction : General Project Meeting of LOWINFOOD
The meeting of 24 and 25 February 2022 aimed to provide the general overview of the activities carried out in this sixteen month of the project and to plan the next project activities.
The second General Project Meeting of the LOWINFOOD “Multi-Actor design of low-waste food value chains through the demonstration of innovative solutions to reduce food loss and waste” was held on 24th and 25th February 2022 in a hybrid format for the first time since the beginning of the project. The General Project Meeting was hosted by the Univesitaet fuer Bodenkulture Wien (BOKU) in Vienna.
The meeting aimed to provide the general overview of the activities carried out in this sixteen month of the project and to plan the next project activities.
During the first day of the meeting focussed on the innovations that have being evaluated. Several ways have been used for this purpose such as interviews, surveys, data collected from innovations databased and companies, direct measurements to collect data on food waste and composition and expert consultation to fill the gaps or complement information.
The second day of the meeting was dedicated on networking between the partners companies. The partners were divided in different group’s of expertise like: technological innovations oriented to forecasting food demand, technological innovations aimed at inducing behavior change, social innovations and organizational innovations to facilitate the discussion. Then, the discussion were concluded with a recap from the partners attending each groups. They informed the audience about the state-of-the-art innovations and the forthcoming steps they are planning to take.
The LOWINFOOD project mission is to co-design, together with actors of the food chain, low-waste value chains by supporting the demonstration of a portfolio of innovations in the fruits & vegetables, bakery products and fish value chains as well as in a-home and out-of-home consumption.
LOWINFOOD is an EU-funded project in the frame of the Horizon 2020 programme.
