This year Aotearoa needs to put its head down and make serious headway on reducing carbon emissions. With an estimated 30% of food not making it from the paddock or packhouse to the plate, and food waste responsible for 25-30% of household carbon emissions, addressing food waste is a logical place to start.
Dana Gunders from ReFED will join us remotely to open the summit and share lessons from the food waste roadmap she helped develop for the USA. We will then explore each part of Aotearoa’s food chain (paddock, packhouse, presentation and plate) with case studies to highlight the work currently being done in each area.
Panel discussions and workshop sessions will then help identify the work needed to address food waste in each part of the food chain. The preliminary programme can be viewed here.
At the conclusion of the Food Summit, there will be an opportunity for networking from 4pm – 5pm. REGISTER HERE
